When the staff at Santaquin voted for the Crystal Apple award this year, it is was a unanimous decision. The Crystal Apple award at Santaquin was awarded to Mary Smith the school psychologist.

Mary has been working as a psychologist for 23 years, and will retire this coming May.  Our faculty will miss her so much.  We are so grateful for our years with her.  She has worked at numerous schools with many children.  She has mentored many young practicum students and guided them on their way to becoming certified psychologists.

Mary has helped many students over the years and specializes in play therapy. Play therapy provides a way for students to express their feelings through a natural self-healing process. Mary is a wonderful communicator keeping parents informed and at ease knowing that her number one goal is what is best for the child.  Mary is very good at sharing knowledge and helping colleagues in any way she can.  She is always positive and upbeat.  The staff at Santaquin would like to congratulate Mary on an award well deserved!!

Craig Harvey from Horace Mann presented the award to Mary.
