The Springville City Council Chambers was filled with some pretty amazing students and their parents in February as Mayor Richard Child and the City Council honored them for their community service and involvement in the Springville Junior High Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA). A few of the note-worthy projects they have been involved in are; fundraising efforts raising over $25,000 to help assist Mihkenna Merrill with her medical expenses, picking pumpkins and gourds for Harvest Farms, volunteering with Happy Valley Farmer’s Market and helping with Red Ribbon Week. The SJHS PTSA is led by wonderful parent volunteers. PTSA President Tess Jones describes the students she works with as “hard working, sincere, dedicated and having great attitudes.”
Pictured with their families are the nine Mayor Recognition Award receipients: Alexi Love, Jesus Hernandez, Brynn Jones, Molly Hunter, Levi Palmer, Kevin Pau Rojas, Gavin Jones, Madoc Jones and Deagan Rosenlof,
Look around you. Nominate a student serving others and working hard at www.springville.org/mayoraward. We would love to see them at our next city council awards.
