Local News

Here at KREX 5 News we are proud to honor educators in Mesa County’s District 51 who are making a difference. This month we headed to R-5 High School to recognize Math Teacher, Ms.Amber McElwee. Amber was nominated because of her ability to connect, relate, adapt and change with the unique needs of R-5 Students. AND, She truly cares about helping her students learn and understand the REAL world issues they will soon face once they leave school.  

In addition to being honored, Amber received a basket of goodies from Home Style Bakery in Grand Junction and a one-hour massage.
