Her service to the schools led her to Springville High School, where she raised money for the wrestling team and provided them with a new competition wrestling mat. She has also been active in the Booster Club and served on the Community Council for six years. Through the years, as she became more and more involved at the high school; she became the Red Devil cheer advisor, overseeing the cheer squad for the past 10 years. Through youth cheer and mini cheer clinics, she has been able the touch the lives of thousands of little girls and hundreds on the high school level.
Springville ranks now as an elite cheer squad, but more important to Stacy is that the girls learn life lessons in hard work, respect, modesty, high moral standards, responsibility and teamwork. She knows that someday the opportunity will end for these girls to cheer, but these other lessons will be with them throughout their lives.
