Tara Jacobson is new to Springville High and works in our finance office.  She enjoys exploring mountain trails, avoiding housework, keeping the high record at Whack-a-Mole, and riding her semi-recumbent senior citizen’s bicycle. Jacobson has been married for 16 years and has three children, her oldest to be joining us here at SHS next Fall.

Jacobson graduated from Southern Utah University in 1997, majoring in Spanish.

“My Spanish is rusty, so come practice with me if you speak Spanish,” said Jacobson.

The most unusual job Tara worked at was in college.  She would gather juniper berries in the wilderness outside of Cedar City for a liquid herbal extract manufacturer.

If there was any place in the world she could go, it would be England. She also likes the idea that she doesn't need to learn a new language to go to a foreign country.

If you have the opportunity, make sure get to know our wonderful new financial secretary.

Petersen said, “Probably my round game and maybe signals.”

“As a team we are doing super well; we took region and went to state,” said Petersen.

Petersen commented on why she likes playing tennis, “I chose tennis because I quit soccer, and my dad had a lot of influence on me; so, I chose tennis.  I just like playing tennis; it's not just a team spot, but also a personal spot as well.  I think it’s a lot of fun.”

Hana Miyasaki, who plays doubles on the JV Girls Tennis team, played in the JV tournament. Miyasaki is always improving her game.

“Tennis is a mental game, so just focusing on staying positive is what I would like to improve,” said Miyasaki.

Miyasaki commented that the team did very well this year, and she did much better this year than she did last year.

Miyasaki decided to play tennis because, “I didn’t have anything else to do at the time. I enjoy tennis because it’s fun and competitive,” said Miyasaki.

Girls Tennis Team Members:
Savannah Cochran, Alexi Corfield, Kelsey Corfield, Lydia Felix, Brooke Galbraith, Amanda Gardner, Hannah Geary, Emma Haven, Brianna Hardy, Hana Miyasaki, Maren Murphy, Addison Nielson, Katie Petersen, Elizabeth Rex, Naomi Rollins, Olivia Smith, Samantha Smith, Brinley Southam, Kelsey Sumsion, Jane Sweat, AnnaBeth Templeman, Emma Templeman, Chloe Welch, and Christine White

Boys Cross Country team wins state trophy; Lady Red Devils finish 4th

Congratulations to the Red Devil Boys Cross Country team for taking first place in state competition; an amazing accomplishment.  The Girls Cross Country team had a great showing with a 4th place state finish overall.

Benton Bird on the boys cross country team has set goals and has tried to do better ever since he started racing. His goal is to do better and what helps him achieve that is to attend practice. He started running this year with the team and loves it. He has a routine that he does before a meet. 

“The night before I eat protein like toast; more specifically, peanut butter toast. I also drink a lot of water,” said Bird.

He likes the aspect that he can make friends who have the same athletic goals and they can achieve it together.

Amanda Brimhall, who runs for Springville’s Cross Country Lady Red Devils team, always sets goals before every meet. One of her goals to achieve is to push herself as much as she can, she achieves these goals by friends who push her to be great. Amanda says that before every meet to prepare the team they meditate and envision the race.

“If you see yourself doing great, you’ll succeed,” said Brimhall.

“Cross Country is a great way to meet friends,” added Brimhall, “I started cross country with my sophomore friend; since then, I haven’t wanted to stop.”

Cody Brown’s goals include not giving up, no matter how hard it gets. His daily routine before a meet is eating a good meal the night before and drinking lots of water.  Then, he gets into the mentality of winning and achieving. He joined cross country because of his friends.

“It might be challenging and a lot of work, but it's a lot of fun,” said Brown.

FFA Summer Softball

Mon, 10/16/2017 - 1:25pm

To end our summer, Springville FFA invited other area FFA chapters to join them for local Agriculture tours and a little friendly, competitive softball tournament. We were excited to host Payson, Spanish Fork, as well as North and South Summit chapters.

After a short drive, we enjoyed a tour of the Elberta Farm. Participants were very interested in the various activities and all seemed to enjoy the time there. One part of the tour took us near the tractors. Some of the tractors had wheels taller than most everyone. Some members also took a tour of the dairy to see the equipment and how the dairy operation works. While only a small sample, it was very interesting to experience, a little of what farm life is like.

Upon returning to Springville High, the intense softball action began. Game after game brought out both friendship and competition in each individual. Perhaps the highlight of the day for some was the tasty lunch cooked by Jeff Wimmer. Hot dogs and hamburgers never looked and tasted so good. Softball games resumed after our lunch was devoured. Springville FFA ended up the ultimate victors, claiming the championship for the home team. We thank all our guests for coming and the volunteers for helping us run our tournament. We hope this event grows in the coming years with more FFA chapters joining in the fun.

At Little Hands on The Farm, members taught elementary students about the comings and goings of a farm and some fun facts about farm living.

On October 10, members from the Springville FFA participated at Snow College for judging competitions. Members of the FFA chapter participated in the following competitions: Agronomy, Floriculture, Horse, Dairy Cattle, Veterinary Science. and Livestock.

There is copious amounts of memorizing, logic, and test taking skills involved in these competitions. These competitions help and encourage members to gain a deeper understanding of agriculture and the different career opportunities available in agriculture. These competitions are extremely beneficial to the agricultural experience.  

FFA members are grateful for all the time and effort our SHS advisors invest into preparing students to participate at this Snow College competition.  A big thank you to the Snow College staff that made this event possible.

Monet Jorgenson is again a published poet

Springville High student, Monet Jorgenson (a Junior), will soon have another literary work published.  Her latest publish piece is titled ​"Girl" and it's a dictionary poem. Dictionary poems follow the format of stating a word (the title of the piece) and then giving two or three "definitions", which act as the main body of the poem.

“I don't quite know what inspired me, but the message I was trying to get across was that girls have power. They are forces of nature, not to be messed with,” said Jorgenson.

Her poem will appear in the 2018 Spring Issue #3 of THAT Literary Review, an online literary magazine.

“I intend, in the future, to keep writing. I don't have any specific plans, but I hope to continue writing until the day I die,” said Jorgenson.

​Jorgenson said, “I'd give others the advice to never stop writing. Your work will get rejected, people will fail to see your genius, but you have to keep writing until you find a publisher who sees your work for what it is--Art.”​
