Springville FFA Enjoys the Gift of Giving

by Chloe Wimmer

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.

Greenhand Ceremony

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.

Honoring our veterans

by Kaitlin Thompson

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.
