A restaurant in Ogden is trying to help first generation immigrant students finish college. On Thursday, the Sonora Grill will raise funds for a scholarship program. One hundred percent of all sales and contributions throughout the day will go directly to pay the tuition for immigrant students attending Weber State University. Sonora Grill owner Steven Ballard says he’s met a lot of immigrants working in the restaurant business.
Interior Secretary Sally Jewell told students at Weber State University today she wants to get more young people involved in the outdoors. She was the keynote speaker at Weber State’s Sustainability Summit.
Jewell says recent budget cuts and the government shutdown really hurt the National Park Service and other agencies in her department.
