On Saturday morning, March 10, Springville High’s Key Club continued their service project from last weekend to paint art on the downstairs track walls and keep that part of the school cleaned up since it's an easily neglected space. Students sweep and washed walls and inside and outside. 

The paint project added blue athlete silhouettes to represent each of the SHS athletic teams; referring to it now as the “Hall of Athletes.” All 17 sports are represented including Marching Band and Color Guard.  Between the two weekends and prep work, over 150 service hours was performed.
