Someone should do a little research and see if Bruce Hurst could be added to that list. I know he played basketball for the Rebels during his off-time from the Red Sox. This was while I was going to school there 76-78. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:19, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
It should be noted under history, why they chose the name Dixie. Any relation to the South? They have recently had two confederate soldiers removed from in front of the main builing, so there must be some connection. --Orakologen (talk) 18:25, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
The region where this school is located was called "Utah's Dixie" by Brigham Young, and it was anticipated that certain cash-crops (particularly cotton) which at the time were predominantly grown in the Deep South could be grown in large quantities in this area of Utah. However the results of the Utah cotton missions were mixed, and Latter-day Saints only started having real success with growing cotton in the Rocky Mountain West after Young's death, when the area now known as Mesa, Arizona started being settled by them in 1877/1878. -- 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:23, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
