Tanner Peterson is the 18 -year-old daughter of Pat and Brenda Peterson from Ferron. She is a senior at Emery High School where she will be graduating with a 3.9 GPA. Tanner represented Emery High this year as their Drama Sterling Scholar and placed first in the state in 2A. She received the Sterling Scholarship to any school in the State of Utah. Peterson was named employee of the month by Emery County Commissioners Tuesday.
Tanner started work at Emery County Aquatic Center in May 2012. She quickly proved herself to be a great worker and very mature young woman. Tanner has fulfilled 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 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.
In early April 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 the lap swimming and aquasizing 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 the community. All of the Emery County Aquatic Center employees and customers would like to thank Tanner for the outstanding job she has done and they want her to know that she will be missed and wish her the best of luck in college and beyond.
