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 Spanish Fork High School welding students constructed a special tree in 2016 to honor a former Don, Kiplyn Davis, that went missing 20 years ago. This year would mark her 20th reunion as a Spanish Fork graduate. Kiplyn loved life. She had a vibrant personality and known as a social “butterfly.” The tree was then donated to the Festival of Trees in Sandy, which raises money each year for Primary Children’s Hospital.

The tree and the three drift trikes hanging from the tree were designed and fabricated out of aluminum by SFHS welding students. The themes of “Butterflies” and “Family” were implemented throughout the project. The drift trikes were built to represent a tradition at SFHS Welding.

Welding teacher Shaun Black said, “The welding students really enjoyed fabricating the drift trikes to represent a tradition here at SFHS Welding and in memory of a Don who will not be forgotten. We appreciated the opportunity to serve the community.”

The Spanish Fork High School FFA also gave a gift of love to the Festival of Trees. The officers chose the theme of “Color Christmas” for their tree and students donated move than 250 coloring books, sets of crayons, markers and colored pencils to help with the tree. In addition, FFA members spent time making and coloring ornaments.

FFA adviser Kaylee Liddiard said, “We would like to thank all of those who made the tree a success.” The SFHS FFA’S tree was purchased by an anonymous sponsor for $1,900.
