Social Studies teacher, Kevin Moritz, receives recognition from Mayor David Alvord for his work with Bingham High students.
To celebrate Bingham Day, two Bingham High teachers were honored with high praises at a Sept. 16 South Jordan City Council meeting. Mayor David Alvord presented Cynthia Cox and Kevin Moritz with plaques and thanked them for the dedication and loyalty they give to their students.
“These teachers go above and beyond what’s expected of them, and we are lucky to have them in our high school,” he said.
Cox teaches CTE Health Sciences and is an athletic trainer for the school and Moritz is a social studies teacher.
Janilee Taylor, Bingham’s assistant principal said the school administration contacted the city and thought the awards would be a good idea to celebrate Bingham Day at the evening’s council meeting.
“Bingham High School is acknowledged once a year by the city council, so we decided to choose a couple of outstanding teachers to be recognized,” she said. “We might do this again next year. I don’t know at this point, but I think it’s a great idea.”
