Rep. Love shows love to excelling high school students

MURRAY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – Students at Murray High School got a congressional surprise Tuesday. Representative Mia Love stopped by to honor students excelling in the classroom.

Representative Mia Love is showing love to some stellar Utah high school students. Tuesday at Murray High School, Love personally presented certificates to 93 students who achieved a 3.8 GPA or higher. They’re part of roughly 2,000 high school seniors throughout Utah’s 4th Congressional District that Love is recognizing for their academic excellence.

“These kids have worked really hard and earned some great grades and they deserve to be recognized for those accomplishments,” said Rep. Mia Love, (R) Utah’s 4th District.

Some students said being recognized is rewarding.

“Sometimes we just go along and we do the work but we don’t really feel like it’s amounting to anything,” said Sidney Peacock, student.

“I had parents who really pushed me to come to school and excel and be the best that I can be,” said Mallory Woodland, student.

Love believes being the best shouldn’t go unnoticed.

“It’s my job as a U.S. Representative to be an advocate for these students, to be able to do everything that I can to make sure that they have the best opportunities at success as possible,” said Love.

ABC 4 Utah is told Love recently passed her first congressional bill. It also assists high school students. It’s called the “Students Right To Know Act.” It gives students more information about colleges they might be considering.
