WOODS CROSS—Rex Green enjoys Chinese food, singing and AP statistics. Green is a very successful student, he never takes the easy way out in classes that he takes, he has taken possibly every AP and honors class offered to him and maintained a 4.0 GPA. Green took the ACT once his junior year and received a perfect score of a 36. He contributes his success in the ACT to the classes he has taken and wonderful teachers he has had. Green is a very motivated student and never backs down from a challenge. After Green graduates in May, he hopes to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and afterwards attend college outside of Utah where he will study engineering and gain new experiences.
As the president of Woods Cross concert choir Green has many musical talents. “One of the first words my mom heard me say was ‘choir,’” said Green. “It's always been a big passion of mine.” 
Green was chosen as Woods Cross High’s sterling scholar winner on the high school level for vocal performance. “Anytime I ask him to do a task he does it without hesitating,” said Krista Baer, the music teacher at Woods Cross High.
Green can run a 4.47 mile and enjoys running cross country on the Woods Cross High cross country team. He is a varsity runner and team captain. “Rex sincerely cares about other people,” said Zack Hansen, cross country coach at Woods Cross High. “He cares if he puts the work in and if his team does too, his actions have always shown that. He is selfless and sacrifices his own glory for the benefit of the team. He wants nothing more than for Woods Cross to be good.”
Besides all his outstanding achievements, Rex is mostly known for being kind. “I had one class with Rex,” said Zoe Williams senior at Woods Cross High School, “and ever since that class Rex has remembered my name and always made sure to say hi to me in the halls, he also brought me Twizzlers just because he knew I liked them.”
He is kind and friendly to everyone, said Jaycie Bott, a student at Woods Cross High. “Rex is the sweetest guy and an absolute genius.”
