  1. Cynthia-

    Hi there it’s Shannon (Pallat) Kelley. How are you? I saw you in passing last week at Kaye Hansen’s funeral, and then ended up talking to your dad and Mike afterwards. They mentioned to me that you might be interested in doing some advertising with us here at Utah Valley Magazine to help increase enrollment at the Academy. I’d love to sit down with you or whomever is in charge of marketing and talk about the great opportunities we have here to help increase awareness and educate the community about Ivy Hall Academy, what you offer and what sets you apart from other private schools like Waterford, Challenger, etc.

    If you can point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it. Hope all is going well for you and your family. It was so great to see so many familiar 14th ward faces last week! It reminded me of how lucky I was to have been raised in such an incredible ward with the most amazing people!

    Take care-
