Recently, the company Blendtec donated eight blenders to the Springville Junior High School’s foods class. But they didn’t donate to just Springville Junior High, they donated blenders to all the secondary schools in Utah County. Caitlin Dinkle, ninth grade student at SJHS, and her dad, Ken, brought them in one day and now the foods class uses them almost everyday. On October sixth, the Blendtec Company came and did a demonstration at SJHS and all the students got to learn about the company and the blenders too.
