Public School Employees. Kane County School District

Updates: 12/08/22 add section for Fredonia-Moccasin School district, 09/04/22 add response by Susie Harris, 03/11/2022 updated all sections

Bigotry and/or extremism posted publicly on social media by Kane County School District employees. When sufficient evidence exists, they are included on Hatewatch by KURW and indicated as such with “Yes” in spreadsheet below.

As a retired educator, I understand the standards set for school employees in regards to public activity. School personnel should at the minimum be able to process information and be discrete about how they act on information to exclude promoting false information, conspiracy theories, anti-science/public safety, violence, bigotry and extremist groups.

    3. Alicia Riggins Cram

    Alicia Cram posts that she works as a paraprofessional educator at Kanab Elementary School (KES) and owns a photography business. She supports local hate group Kanab Patriots ( see Kane County Commissioner Calls Kanab Patriots a Hate Group, But They Are Not the Fringe and “Kanab Patriots” Recruits and Radicalizes Facebook Extremists) and she & family have shown support for Kanab at DC Capitol Riot.

    Below, is an interactive Google Slides presentation for the Cram family who are all public employees, and a list of related KURW posts featuring/including Alicia:

    Alicia’s extremism includes: promoting false narratives, outright lies, support of Stop-the-Steal, minimizing Capitol Insurrection. Alicia has supported FB page “Kanab Patriots” Recruits and Radicalizes Facebook Extremists and their activities including their harassment of residents & businesses supporting Black Lives Matter & characterization of liberals as sick people. Alicia used local FB group Kanab/Fredonia Rant & Rave as a platform for hate to sabotage social justice & police reform efforts and to defend confrontational activity of counter protesters, including Steve Corson who was a Kanab “Patriots” at the Capitol Insurrection and Local Law Enforcement Praise.

    Casey is a 4th grade teacher at Kanab Elementary School. There are only two public posts. One promotes false narratives about Biden, conspiracy theory about Pelosi, hatred of any Democrat, misinformation about Trump accomplishments, anti-media and Hollywood…everything in one post and Casey “liked” it. The second promotes efforts to discredit social justice activism by athletes with the “this is what real sports heroes look like”. Read more about the history of athlete activism

    6. Suzie Harris

    Suzie Harris is listed as a Kindergarten teacher at Valley Elementary School in Orderville, Utah (Kane County School District).

    Harris posts publicly hard-line eternal religious philosophy and other bigotry. She supports posts by some Red Level Hatewatch Neighbors (Hooper, Pratt & Brinkerhoff). Harris had no public posts of Patriotism (military, veterans, law enforcement) since 2014 until the global movement for Black Lives Matter following the murder of George Floyd by convicted former MN officer Chauvin. (Context: Suzie’s brother-in-law was killed in the line of duty in 2010)

    This is the public evidence of bigotry and extremism posted and/or supported by Harris:

    Response to exposed bigotry/extremism by KURW from person with Suze Harris email:

    7. Colten “CJ” Johnson

    Colten is now Mayor of Kanab City. His list of evidence in the screenshot below needs updated. He is a Red Level Kanab Patriot. These are other KURW posts including Colten:

    David Crosby, owner of Crosby Home & Farm, went to DC for Stop-the-Steal turn insurrection.

    8. Mason Fox

    Mason is a social science teacher at Kanab High/Middle School. There are no social media posts of bigotry or extremism, just an encounter at a rally which was not enough to draw any conclusion regarding Mason and bigotry or extremism, just a note of attention. Mason approached a demonstrator at a Black Lives Matter Rally and I intervened when that encounter moved to more of a verbal attack on her instead of a conversation when she replied “zero police murders is the acceptable number for me.” I recall that our discussion ended in a civil manner and that I would have liked to have talked more with him in a better setting.

    Mason, please email me. If anyone has evidence for Mason (positive or negative) or witnessed the “discussion”, please email me.

    Submit corrections and/or additions to above email.

    Published by mgalaria

    I resided in the Kanab, Utah area from 2009 throughout 2020. I am reformed right, 15 years now, with most family members still far-right. I lived 37 of my 48 years in rural America. I created KURW after I discovered that two people from Kanab who I knew were at the Jan 6th Capitol Insurrection and the continued threat warning from DHS regarding the far-right movement. Studies show new trends in extremist characteristics, feelings of fear/anger/betrayal, an increase in social media recruitment and incitement, and radicalization as quickly as six months. I had a lot of documentation from covering the six months of weekly Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter and MAGA events in Kanab. I used that documentation, public posts on social media, contribution from community members and outside organizations to create Hatewatch because I feel like that is the best way that I can address the call for awareness.
