Springville City Councilman Chris Sorenson awarded two very deserving students the Springville Mayor’s Recognition Award during January’s Springville City Council Meeting.

Recipient Jaden Christensen is in ninth grade at Mapleton Junior High School. He is the son of Holly and Mike Christensen. MJHS counselor and HOPE Squad advisor Kirsten Hullinger nominated Jaden. She said, “Jaden is truly a caring, thoughtful, friendly and kind young man. Jaden is very perceptive of others’ feelings and has alerted me several times about students that are in need of help. He always has a smile on his face and is quick to start up a conversation with anyone and everyone. He is genuinely interested in what the person has to say and is a wonderful listener.”

Korri Cooper is a fifth-grader at Cherry Creek Elementary School. She is the daughter of Jessica and Randy Cooper. She was nominated by her teacher Chaylce Peck, who said, “Korri is so positive and a light to be around. She is so kind, generous and a positive influence. She is a hard worker. She works endlessly at improving herself. She is a great example to all around her. She lifts others to be their best selves.”
