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 The Springville-Mapleton Chamber of Commerce has chosen Emily Bird as its Youth Citizen of the Year for 2017. This is the first time the chamber has awarded this honor and we are happy that it is going to a very deserving girl in our community.

Emily Bird has lived her entire life in the same home in Springville. In her early years, she was an active little thing and was always up to something. The most common phrase at her house was, “Where’s Emily?” Though she may have shaved a few years off of her parents’ lives, she did eventually grow up. Luckily, she retained her imagination and determination – two of her best traits.

Emily is the daughter of Blaine and Marla Bird. She is a senior at Springville High School and loves being a Red Devil. She has served on the student council each year and is the SHS student representative to the Nebo School District Board of Education. You can find Emily at almost any SHS activity as she cheers and supports her fellow Red Devils.  Though she’s not anxious to graduate, she is busy applying to colleges and making plans for her future.

If you see Emily, you’ll almost always see her with a smile. She loves life, her friends, animals and serving others. She also enjoys playing sports, snowboarding, traveling and visiting the beach. She is one happy girl and loves to share that happiness with others.  Last year, she set a goal to hand write a personal birthday card to each one of her 486 classmates.  She enjoyed it so much that she’s doing it again this year.

Emily has two sisters and a brother and is looking forward to being an aunt for the first time.  She is the granddaughter of Phil and Katherine Bird of Springville and Gary and Janice Egbert of Lewiston.
