Clyde Co., for which Wambeke works in Springville, Utah. Working on a particular project as a field engineer, Wambeke has assumed a supervi- sory role and not only excels in that role but can also step in for his supervisor, according to a narrative read at the annual meeting. "As a young engineer, Chris has all eyes on him, including the attention of a joint venture partner," the narrative reads. The partner's district manager was "blown away" by Wambeke's work plans, the narra- tive continues, and told his district that the plan was one of the best he had ever seen. "Chris is a rising star. He quickly picks up on the necessary tools, language and knowledge needed to work in the industry without missing a beat," the narrative con- tinues. "He takes the time to share these with his young peers and crew to help to stay up on the latest news. "Chris is a major contributor at W.W. Clyde, has represented us well with our JV partner and will certainly be 'one to watch' in the months and years to come." A 2008 graduate of BYU-Idaho, Wam- beke and his wife, Molly, have one daugh- ter, Eva, who is 18 months old. He is the son of Debbie and the late Harry Wambeke of Cowley.

"That's a p,nomenal throw t'o start ot m Janu- ary," coach Joshua Sanders said of Anderson's effort in the shot put. "He's done that consistently. Every year he starts out throwing better than last year and improves throughout the year. He consistently pro- gresses."
