Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Jill Piacitelli

The soccer season for area high school girls has ended. The team from Spanish Fork High School had a great run, finishing second in the region and making it to the 4A state quarterfinals.

The 13 seniors on the roster had a big impact on the success this season, which was felt both on and off the field. A great example of this impact was the girls kicking off the legacy of an annual Senior Service Project. This year, the selected project was a restoration of the soccer scoreboard.

Co-captain Ezrie Pace explained, “We wanted to do something that reflected our pride and appreciation for the soccer program.” After getting approval from the school administration and coaches, the seniors took on the project of giving the faded 20-year-old scoreboard a face lift. Close to 75 hours were spent cleaning, buffing and repainting. The end result was a beautiful, shining-like-new red scoreboard.r“We have loved our time as players,” Pace said, “and think that doing a Senior Service Project is a great way to leave the program better than when we arrived. Giving back is a great way to show appreciation. We hope that this will become a tradition that future classes follow.”

The motto on the front of the high school reads, “Here, we learn for life.” With hundreds of hours spent on the soccer field over the past year, that statement applies to this team. Players learned not only soccer skills but about friendship, leadership, loyalty, belief and hard work. This year, all of these combined to create good memories, valuable life experiences and a great team.
