Mr. Mortensen will be our new dean of students next year. We asked him to introduce himself and this is what he had to say:

"Hello Students & Faculty!  My name is Mr. Mortensen (some call me “Morty") and I have been assigned to be the new Dean of Students at SFJHS! I’m excited to get to know all of you and looking forward to a great year ahead!   

I have been with Nebo School District for my entire career, starting first at Goshen Middle School for 7 years and then at Payson Jr. High for the past 20 years. I was Dean of Students for the last 3 ½ years at Payson Jr. High.  I received my Bachelors Degree from SUU, my Masters in Counseling from University of Phoenix, and my Administrative Degree from SUU.   Some of my favorite hobbies are spending time with my family, riding my horse(s), 4-wheeling, camping, and watching my children compete in different sporting events.  My wife’s name is Lynette and we have been married 30 years this September!   We have 5 sons and 1 daughter, 2 daughters-in-law (yes, Mrs. Mortensen from Riverview has told me lots of good things about you 7th graders) and best of all, 1 awesome 4 year old grandson and 1  sweetheart granddaughter.  Come introduce yourself to me, I am looking forward to getting to know each of you and having a great time at Spanish Fork Junior High!"
