Recently, Springville High’s band members and band director, Ben Major, received two anonymous donations, one worth $10,000 and the other worth $15,000. Lana Hiskey, executive director of the Nebo Education Foundation, presented the donations to the very excited recipients. 

Mr. Major responded, “I'm very excited and very grateful to receive this money for the band program.  We're going to be using the money to help purchase new music, supplies for instrument repair, and other needs for the band program such as a drum major podium and some new percussion instruments.  This is going to go a long way in helping us provide the best musical opportunities possible for the students at Springville High School.” 

"Thank you generous donors for contributing to such an important part of education," Lana Hiskey said, "Our businesses and community members that contribute in various ways such as time, talent, and treasure, really made a positive impact in educating our students. We are deeply grateful for such generosity."
