Attention all Snow College Alumni, faculty and staff who knew Dr. Paul Gardner (Dr. G!) as their teacher, mentor and friend!

Dr. G is retiring this year and we are having an outdoor party to celebrate his extraordinary teaching career that YOU are invited to! (RSVP details below).

With that, we also wanted to ask his vast alumni audience for help with putting together a slideshow/video celebrating his past teaching career. We are in need of any photos/videos of your memories with Dr. G and his past classes and would love it if you would upload these photos and videos to this shared Google Drive folder no later than Friday, May 7th:

This gives you a little over two weeks to search through your storage drives for any images or videos that you'd like included in Dr. G's slideshow/video!

Here are additional details about Dr. G's Retirement Party:

When: Saturday, May 22nd, 2021, 5:00PM MDT

This may be a long shot, but for those who went to Snow College in 97-98, does anyone remember someone by the name of Samarah Petrini?

Share your stories of Snow College Snow College was founded in 1888 as the Sanpete Stake Academy by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

In 1900 it was renamed Snow Academy in honor of Lorenzo Snow, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and his cousin Erastus, who was instrumental in settling the Sanpete Valley. The institution went through three more name changes in a seven-year period. In 1917, the academy era ended and the school became Snow Normal College. In 1922, officials renamed the school Snow Junio

Operating as usual


There are several staples in a graduation outfit that you are probably familiar with. There is the graduation cap and gown, of course, and sometimes one or more graduation cords. Graduates wear caps and gowns that might be uniform in color. On the other hand, graduation cords typically populate the crowd sparingly, with some graduates even wearing multiple, different colored cords. Nowadays, we have several types of graduation cords. They are used to signify different areas of studies and interests and can even mark the outstanding academic achievements of a graduate. In the case of the orange Alumni Cord, it signifies a student that has given back to their school to help future students and is honoring their place as a proud Snow College alumnus. Let’s populate our graduation crowd completely with orange cords!

Alumni Spotlight!—Sarah Bylund graduated with Summa Cum Laude honors from Snow College in 1998, her chosen major was English. Sarah is currently employed at, but on the side she uses the skills from her English degree to write and edit. After attending Snow College, she received two master degrees: one in Arts Publishing and Writing from Emerson College in Boston, and the other in Arts in American Literature from Brigham Young University. Later in life, Sarah was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. This was a huge revelation to her and prompted her to be even more successful. She is now a proud advocate for those who are on the autism spectrum.

For years, Sarah told herself that she had to choose a “practical” dream for what she wanted to do with her life. And now she has accomplished many big things—like living in Boston, and attending a prestigious college while working for Pearson Education, a major textbook publisher. From a very young age, Sarah wanted to be an author of sci-fi and fantasy, yet she didn’t think she would ever be good enough to accomplish that. Her dream came true in 2020 when she sold her first book, Deja Ortega: Oddsbreaker, to a publisher called Immortal Works. The novel is available as a print book and eBook on Amazon, with an audiobook to come. Sarah enjoys spending time with family, reading, writing, cooking, and traveling. At Snow College, she learned that she could dream big and accomplish those dreams.

Alumni Spotlight-- Cary Wise attended Snow College and majored in agriculture from 1981-1982. He has always had a great passion for the field of agriculture. He was a member of the Lazy S Rodeo Club and enjoyed agricultural projects -- especially the "hog project." By far, his favorite memory from Snow College was meeting his wife, Robin. They met in the rodeo club and have now been married for 39 years. Cary made many amazing friends while attending Snow and has many memorable moments with them. Snow has helped contribute to his accomplishments in many ways, but two faculty members that he especially attributes to his growth are Jack Anderson and Parry Olson. These two professors gave him advice that he remembers to this day.

Over the years, Cary has come back to Snow College to participate in career fairs and exploration classes for the agricultural program. He is now employed at Amazon. Before Amazon, he worked for the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food. He was the Egg and Poultry Program Manager for 31 years and was able to hire several Snow College graduates during that time. Cary has had many achievements from his line of work. He received the Governor’s Award of Excellence for outstanding public service and is a lifetime Honorary Board Member of the National Egg Quality School. He now enjoys working in his yard, collecting toy John Deere tractors, and attending rodeos -- although as a spectator now. He is serving as the Highland City Beautification Committee Chairman where he is able to give back to his community and help others. Cary enjoyed his time at Snow College and is thankful for all the opportunities it has given him over the years.

Because of the size of Snow’s student body, students receive more personal attention and specialized help from professors and advisors. The result is Snow students are recruited and succeed better at Utah’s 4-year institutions more than any other junior college in the state.

The mission of Snow College – to educate students, to inspire them to love learning and to lead them to serve, cannot be accomplished without an outstanding faculty. Snow professors are unencumbered by research unlike their counterparts at 4-year institutions. This allows Snow faculty to focus on teaching and ensuring that students acquire the knowledge and skills they’ll need academically and professionally.

Snow has ample areas of study for students – from Accounting to Zoology, and has developed a reputation as “state of the art” from university colleagues in such areas as science, premed and music.

Snow’s science department has earned a reputation for excellence nationwide. For example, over the past seven years 38 Snow students have taken the Pharmacy College Admissions Test. Twenty-five of them scored in the 95th percentile or higher (seven scored 99%). Thirty-one have been accepted into pharmacy schools.

Snow is one of only 23 2-year colleges accredited as members of the National Association of Schools of Music in the United States and the only 2-year school accredited in Utah. This means that Snow’s Horne School of Music meets the same national standards as the first two years of an accredited 4-year college and university.
Snow’s Horne School of Music features 12 student-performing groups – five choirs, three bands and two jazz ensembles.

In 2005, the National Association of Schools of Theatre awarded Snow’s theatre arts department full accreditation and membership. NAST has approximately 143 accredited institutional members and establishes national standards for undergraduate, graduate degrees and other credentials. Snow College joins Brigham Young University as the only other NAST-accredited institution in Utah and is one of only four junior colleges to achieve NAST accreditation. Snow’s theatre arts program produces four plays a year.

Student Life
Ninety percent of Snow students live in residence halls or off-campus apartments. Fortunately, Snow offers many opportunities for students seeking leadership, academic, athletic, musical or simply social experiences. There are over 43 student organizations, 18 academic clubs and 12 performance groups. Snow also offers 15 intramural sports to choose from and recreational facilities for activities such as swimming, tennis, racquetball, dance, bowling and weightlifting. Nearly all Snow students participate in at least one activity ranging from student government to intramural sports to the KAGE radio club.

Snow provides varsity athletics in football, men’s and women’s basketball, women’s volleyball and women’s softball. In 1985, Snow’s football team won the national championship and has since won several bowl games. This year, the football team enters the season ranked eighth in the prominent junior college football poll. The men’s and women’s basketball teams have combined for several league championships. In 2003-04, the men’s basketball team tied for the Scenic West Athletic Conference regular season title. In 2011-2012 the Women's Basketball team clinched the program's first Conference title and went to the National Tournament, winning 1 game, under first-year Head Coach, Natalie Visger.
