She is being named outstanding chemistry student of 2014 at the awards ceremony on April 25. Her mother, Lorilyn King Vogel, served as valedictorian of her graduating class at College of Eastern Utah.

Vogel plans to continue her education at the University of Utah in the fall.

Goodrich helped organize a number of musical programs at the Price LDS Institute. She plans to continue her education at Southern Utah University to pursue degrees in both business administration and criminal justice.

The second co-salutatorian is Jaylee Nielsen, daughter of Lee and Jaynie Rae Nielsen. She achieved a perfect GPA through her junior high and high school years. She earned academic all-state in tennis four years and was runner-up in region as Carbon's General Sterling Scholar.

Nielsen enjoyed her college experience, especially the accounting classes. She aspires to own a business and hopes this is a stepping-stone for that goal.

One of her favorite quotes is, "for life is like a piano, what you get out of it depends on how you play it."
