Ruby Campbell

Ruby is a graduating Senior from Spanish Fork High School. Ruby's friends and family would describe her as kind, smart, and hardworking. She is from the Cherokee Tribe.

Some activities Ruby likes to do in her free time is to draw, watch movies, and play sports. Ruby is a very talented individual and she played softball for the Spanish Fork Dons. She has spent a lot of time and dedication practicing the sport she loves. Her favorite foods are pomegranates & chicken fingers. Blue is her favorite color. Her favorite quote is by Dr. Suess, "Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory."

Ruby is a strong and motivated young lady who makes her education a priority in her life. During her high school career, she has received exceptional grades and has been on the high honor roll many times. In high school, her favorite class was Art. She was able to create wonderful artwork, and the class ended up being a way for her to de-stress.

Ruby has plans of serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints immediately following graduation. She would also like to go to Europe and travel.

Congratulations, Ruby! The Nebo Title VI Program is extremely proud of you. You have accomplished so much already, and we know that you will accomplish wonderful things in the future.

Nebo Title VI Native Clubs
(more pictures available)

Did you know that each Jr. High and High School in Nebo School District offers a Native Club? Native club is intended to create an environment where students can learn about American Indian contributions and culture, meet with other American Indian students, and work on arts and crafts together.

Native clubs meet monthly, and the day and time depend on which school you attend. Please check our calendar for more information. Any student who attends Nebo School District can attend Native Club. We encourage non-native students to join. 

Title VI Representatives are responsible for an assigned area within Nebo School District. Please reach out to your Title VI Representative for more information about your specific Native Club. Encourage your students to attend Native Club. Title VI Representatives often distribute activity information and scholarship opportunities out through Native Club.
