Erika NortonHi! My name is Erika Norton and I am the What is the Utah Scholars Program? Program Manager. Utah Scholars is an awesome program that helps students be more prepared for college. Our goal is to help you succeed and achieve your dreams. I started out volunteering with the program and that led to a full-time position three and a half years ago.

I’m from Salt Lake City and went to Skyline High School. After high school, I went to to Utah State University and graduated with my bachelor’s degree in anthropology, which is the study of culture and people. I am a huge Aggie and loved going to college in Logan.

In my spare time, you can find me in the mountains hiking, or traveling the world. My goal is to hike 52 times this year.

I love helping others and am happy to answer any questions you may have about college. Shoot me an email at You can also check me out on Instagram (@freebirdrika) to see my adventures.
