On October 30 and 31, Springville High’s senior English classes participated in a World War l Centenary Commemoration to launch their War literature unit. Five Star Generals Simmons and Rabner led the many students that were “drafted” into Command Post HQ, the library, and given the weapon of choice, a camouflage Army pencil.

After running a lap around the courtyard, our soldiers were given an issued Military Uniform, dog tag, a tin helmet, and a Kit-bag, before being filed back into the library where they sat in their assigned trenches (upside-down tables).
