Bridges special needs students receive Easter surprise
Apr 07, 2016 12:00AM
The students at Bridges have the opportunity to receive on-the-job training at participating businesses throughout the Nebo community. At these jobs, students develop a work ethic and skills that will help them to secure permanent employment in their future. With the help of local businesses and citizens, Bridges is a successful and rewarding program.
This year, the students received a special surprise from the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce. A $150 donation was made to the school's "Healthy Hearts Program." This program was created in an effort to raise funds to purchase adult tricycles for the school. During the school year, students learn to ride these bikes and students that qualify will have an opportunity to enter a drawing to take the bike home at the end of the year. This has been an exciting opportunity for Bridges students.
