Previously Rick was the Equine Programs Director as well as the Training Supervisor at Sorenson’s Ranch School in Koosharem UT. Rick believes that every person has value and has something to add to their community and that each person owes a debt of gratitude to their ancestors who have provided a path for them. Ricks goals while at RRH are to provide the students with a clean, comfortable, and safe environment where they can prepare themselves to achieve their dreams and be a positive addition to their future communities. Rick grew up in the small Utah town of Fillmore, UT. He loved horses from an early age and realized the truth in Winston Churchill’s quote, “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.” After high school graduation and studies at SUSC he spent the rest of his early adult years in the Air Force where he was a veteran of Desert Storm. Rick was recognized as a Distinguished Graduate of his Airman Leadership School class and became a NCO before being honorably discharged. Rick loved learning the traditions and customs of other cultures while in the Air Force, and to this day he is always seeking to find what makes each culture great. But as he traveled the globe he always looked forward to coming home on leave and riding his horse into the mountains to find that peaceful feeling that was missing in the world. After the service Rick began a successful career in the livestock transportation industry as a safety supervisor for a trucking company. During his 14 year tenure he was responsible for keeping a fleet of nearly 60 trucks maintained and operating safely. After many years in the business world Rick had the opportunity to join the equine program at Sorenson’s Ranch. This was the positive change Rick was looking for in life, finally a chance to work with teenagers and horses, two of his passions in life. Rick became certified in the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA) modality of mental health treatment and practiced daily with students who benefited from time with horses. As a supervisor he cared for the daily needs of the students to make sure they had the best chance at success. Whether it was a clean and safe living area or activities set up on campus, Rick always made sure the students had everything he could provide to help them be successful in their daily lives. Rick and his wife Marci are the proud parents of five children, three of which are grown and have left home. He lives in the small town of Aurora UT with his wife and two remaining children. In his spare time Rick enjoys riding horses with his family, spending time outdoors, and coaching wrestling at the local high school. email@example.com Beatriz Quitco Counselor Beatriz Quitco joined Richfield Residential Hall in 2009.

Tachii’nii nishlí Tl’izilani báshíshchíní. Hello, my name is La Toya Lynn Clark I am of the Red Running Into The Water Clan and born for Many Goats Clan. I attended South Sevier High School my freshman and sophomore year (2000-2002) and attended Richfield High School my junior and senior year (2002-2004). Growing up I have always been in a dorm on the Navajo reservation, I went to Kayenta Boarding School, where I was promoted in 2000, and decided to head out here to Richfield Utah to attend the high school here. It was the best decision I ever made in my life because coming here was a wonderful experience. Education was, and still is one of the top priorities here at Richfield Residential Hall and the students that come here become family. That is one of the greatest things I love about RRH, the staff here spend their time working hard every day to make the dorm not only a safe environment but a place that we, previous and new students, can call home.I’ve always been amazed with the people that spend their time every day with us; they become our teachers and even better, they become closer to you like our mothers, fathers, grandmas, and grandpas. They are the people that we children look up to for guidance, teachings, and life learning lessons. Our parents are our first teachers, the staff that are working within these facilities also become those teachers in our lives as well. They are the ones that will continue to show us how to be responsible and respectful. To show us every day new things that will help us with our own lives after high school, we learn the values of keeping our homes clean and down to the smallest things like; managing our time, laundry, helping our fellow students with homework, etc. To be a part of this team as a Homeliving Assistant, my goal is to continue to help the students reach their success in education by making sure they have a safe and clean environment. Also, be there for their needs; mentally, physically, and spiritually. Just like all the people who work at the different dormitories across the Navajo Nation, I want to make a difference in a child’s life by being here; letting them know we are here and we care. I appreciate all the men and women in my life for helping in shaping me to be the person that I am today. Thank you for the opportunity!
