BEEHIVE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY ACADEMY NAMES
NEW SCHOOL COUNSELOR
Sandy—Beehive Science and Technology Academy, the Sandy-based charter school for grades 6 through 12, has named Alexis “Lexie” Hemeyer as its school counselor.
Hemeyer received her master of counseling degree in mental health and school counseling emphasis from the University of Arizona in May 2019. She earned her bachelor’s degree in communications and psychology from Dixie State University in 2013. Prior to joining Beehive, she was an internship volunteer with the Timpanogos High School Counseling Center. She has also been an internship volunteer with Utah Valley University’s Academic Counseling Center and a practicum volunteer with Reflections Recovery Center. From 2014 to 2015, she was a shift supervisor and staff member at Three Points Center in LaVerkin. She was also a long-term substitute for the school counselor at Dixie Sun Elementary School in 2014.
Hemeyer was raised in Oakley, Utah. She lived in Spain for two years. She is married to Brandon Hemeyer, a pre-med student at BYU.
Beehive Science and Technology Academy opened in 2005. The school offers a curriculum with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Beehive was named Charter School of the Year 2016 by the Utah Association of Public Charter Schools, and given Platinum STEM School Designation (the highest designation possible—and Beehive was one of only two schools to receive this designation that year) by the Utah State Board of Education and the STEM Action Center for the 2015/2016 school year. (Incidentally, there are now over 120 public charter schools in Utah.) In October 2017, Beehive was named an Apple Distinguished School for 2017 through 2019. Beehive is the first and only Utah school to receive this national honor. Beehive is located at 830 E. 9400 S. in Sandy.
