One student’s idea of not letting anyone at Spanish Fork High be forgotten on Valentines Day was huge success with many participating and sharing the love. Two Utah companies, Mrs. Call's Candy Company and V Chocolates, supported the students with their goal so all students and faculty were remembered and valued on Valentines Day.
