Recognition: Tanner Petersen
Tanner Petersen is the 18 year old daughter of Todd and Brenda Petersen of Ferron. She is a Senior at Emery High School where she will be graduating with a 3.9 GPA. Tanner represented Emery High School this year as their Drama Sterling Scholar and placed first in the state 2A. She received a Sterling Scholar scholarship to any school in the State of Utah.
Tanner started work at the Emery County Aquatic Center in May of 2012. She quickly proved herself to be a great worker and a very mature young woman. Tanner has excelled in every aspect of her job. She is great with patrons and has a love for working with the public. Tanner has been opening the Aquatic Center at 5:30 a.m. for the last four months. Opening the Aquatic Center at 5:30 a.m. requires a great deal of maturity for a high school student. She always opens on time and greets her customers with a wonderful smile, even at 5:30 in the morning.
On April 10 of this year, due to unforeseen circumstances the pool was not able to open. Tanner looked up the telephone numbers of all 38 of her regular morning patrons that would be showing up for lap swimming and Aquasize in the morning and let them know that the pool could not open that day.
This is just one example of the great job Tanner does for our community. All of the Emery County Aquatic Center employees and customers would like to thank Tanner for the outstanding job she has done.
We want her to know that we will miss her and wish her the best of luck at college and beyond.
