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 Joe Anson

What do you do when you want to show your children’s teachers you appreciate them? Provide lunch. That might sound feasible for one or two elementary school students, right? A quick gift card to a restaurant is easy. However, Gregg and Becky Driggs’s daughters Lily and Kari attend Spanish Fork Jr. High, where they have multiple teachers. Still, the Driggs family wanted to show their gratitude for their children’s teachers and insisted on providing lunch.

The Driggs family didn’t stop with the teachers who interacted with Kari and Lily on a daily basis. On Friday, March 2, 2018, to kick start Teacher Appreciation Week (March 5-9), the Driggs family provided lunch for the entire faculty of Spanish Fork Junior High. That includes over 70 teachers and support staff! Mr. Mortensen, Dean of Students, said of the event, “We know parents appreciate what we do at the school, but the Driggs family went above and beyond to show their gratitude and we were all very pleasantly surprised by the delicious meal they provided for us.”

Driggs also made special mention of a few of the teachers and staff that have impacted his daughter’s lives.

He said, “Another amazing teacher…Mrs. Rogers has done wonders with Lily!!!” and “Thank you Mr. Waters and Mr. Johnson for all you do!!!”

The generous donation brought good feelings all around. “So happy to be able to thank all of these awesome teachers and staff!!” Driggs said.
