Nebo Education Foundation board members meet each month to review and award grant requests, consider fund-raising avenues, and other items that advance the educational opportunities for Nebo School District students. The Nebo Education Foundation functions through generous donations made by individuals and businesses.
Ninth-grade Springville Junior High student, Lindsay Gardiner, received the Springville Mayor’s Recognition Award at Tuesday’s City Council Meeting. Assistant Principal Shauna Shepherd nominated Lindsay for her kindness and her ability to see the needs of others. Ms. Shepherd writes “Lindsay took it upon herself to organize a group of friends to write 365 anonymous notes to a struggling student so she would have one happy note to read from a friend every day.” Springville City Council, Mayor Child and the community are so grateful for Lindsay and her example.
