Brenda Young - David O. McKay Student of the Years for the State of Utah 2013

As a professional Art Educator, I have worked in the Washington County School District since 1994.  I graduated from Southern Utah University with a double art major with emphasis in Ceramics and Illustration.  Although, I am originally from Cedar City, I was fortunate enough to marry a "local girl" and we have chosen to raise our five children here in Hurricane.  

   I have blessed to have been recognized in my career as the Middle School Art Teacher of the Year and the High School Art Teacher of the      Year for the State of Utah.
   I have also received the Outstanding Art Educator of the Year from the Springville Museum of Art.  Sharing art with students is my              passion, I am lucky enough to get paid for what I love

  Since 1996 I have been active in the Utah Arts Educators Association (UAEA).  As a member of the during that time I have served as    President Elect, President, Past President and Site Coordinator.  As a Coordinator for the Annual UAEA Conference, I have hosted or co-    hosted the conference since 2000.  The greatest part of being active in the UAEA is experiencing the networking that influences art  education across the state.
