What a wonderful time of the year for Springville FFA and Springville High School. We were able to participate in the United Way’s Sub-4-Santa program. The FFA along with many other clubs at the school had the privilege of providing Christmas for 50 local children. For those who know about the FFA Sweethearts contest put on in the spring, all money raised from the cake auction is what helps us be able to provide Christmas for others in our community. Thank you to everyone that helped make Sub-4- Santa a success again this year.
At the beginning of the music assembly, Springville's Red Devil Cross Country team presented to the student body and administration the flag they received for finishing 15th at Nationals. Congratulations Boys Cross Country on a historic and amazing season run.
What better way to start Christmas break but with an amazing music assembly for our student body and staff by our Fine Arts department.
Performances by Wind Symphony, all SHS Choirs, and Jazz Band were entertaining and wonderful.
We want to congratulate our first year members for earning their Greenhand Degrees. At Springville Junior High there was a creed speaking contest in which members competed in saying the creed. The creed is a five paragraph belief statement that FFA members memorize.
All of the first year members were awarded their Greenhand pin for their jackets and also received a certificate in honor of being a Greenhand. Congratulations to all those who received their Greenhand Degree.
Springville High School and the FFA honored our U.S veterans for their service throughout the week of November 7 the 11. FFA and Student Council prepared care packages to send to soldiers currently serving. We invited U.S. veterans to join us for breakfast on the morning of Veteran’s Day and held an assembly afterwards honoring them and their service for our country. It was a very touching display. We want to thank all those who have served and are currently serving.
On Tuesday, December 13, Springville’s Red Devil Varsity boys basketball team hosted Kearns and came out victorious, 68-56. Going into halftime, the teams were tied, 29-29.
During the 2nd half, Springville’s entire lineup stepped up for the win including Mason Sumsion with 15 points followed by Andrew Slack with 13. Four Red Devil each had 9 points each—Ben Schreiner, Bennett Hullinger, Josh Elison, and Seth Mortensen.
Congratulations to quiz bowl team “c8h11no3” which is “Norepinephrine” (a chemical composition similar to adrenaline, used to treat life-threatening conditions such as shock and low blood pressure). It’s a good thing this top winning team (Maxwell Riche, Brian Udall, Brady Dolan, and Elizabeth Setzer) didn’t need the actual Norepinephrine since their brains were naturally working overtime to beat their opponents, “The Therapists” -- Jared Buler, Brett Bodily, Simon Laraway, and Morgan Allen. Final score 140-120.
With only 11 questions remaining, the teams were tied 110-110. It was an adrenaline-moving final 20 minutes; both teams showed their knowledge prowess as they sparred back and forth until the very end, making it an exciting quiz bowl final round.
A big thanks goes to Mrs. Lanell Rabner for organizing and moderating the event, Mr. Christian Cragun and Mr. Trent Mikesell for their humorous MC commentary, Mr. Mike Johnson for preparing the slides, Ms. Leslie Christensen for keying the questions, senior Chloe Wilson for designing the T-shirts, Mr. Braden Boss for the audio visual presentation; and, of course, our fabulous judges Ms. Marie Condie and Mr. Dan Frewin.
