Veteran’s Day Honored

Children all over Nebo School District honored Veterans in their community. In many of the schools, the students dressed in their best attire and listened to testimonials of service. Some ideas and quotes included: “The land of the free, because of the brave,” “America, the home of the brave,” and Freedom is not free.”

Spanish Fork Junior High students were captivated by the Veteran’s Day program orchestrated by Becky Provstgaard. 

Everyday Heroes Celebrated at Sierra Bonita with Senator Henderson

Lightning speed, x-ray vision, and red capes are most commonly associated with the world of superheroes. However, students at Sierra Bonita elementary learned that heroes are more than humans with super powers. Heroes are ordinary people doing extraordinary things. On Friday, November 7, at a school-wide assembly, the student body was privileged to hear music, essays, and stories about everyday heroes from local heroes.

Springville Councilman, Dean Olsen, has a lot to smile about as he honors two outstanding students at Springville’s Mayor Recognition Awards. Standing next to Mr. Olsen are Lila Blaser and Kyler Wood. 

Both Westside Elementary students were nominated by their teachers.  Ms. Bair wrote in her nomination that Lila is a “student who consistently strives to do her best in everything she does. Students look to her as a leader because she is respectful and friendly with everyone.”
