r By Gina WoolfrFor the past four years, the Key Club at Springville High School, sponsored by the Springville Kiwanis Club, has been working on an ongoing project to beautify and improve SHS’ indoor track. Thanks to service-oriented SHS Key Club students, advisors, SHS administrators, Nebo School District, the Springville Kiwanis Club, and Eckles Paving, the SHS indoor track has gradually been transformed. It has become a more enjoyable space, full of school spirit, for all SHS students, faculty, and community members to use.

To date, nine cleaning & painting projects have been completed by the SHS Key Club. On April 1, 2014, SHS Key Club members began this ambitious club project. It has continually grown since then. The SHS indoor track now has eleven dedicated walls displaying school pride images, motivational quotes, and wayfinding signage. The latest industrious project, accomplished March 10, 2018, displays seventeen painted silhouettes of athletes in action representing all athletic teams at Springville High School. These images are found on the longest wall of the track in the east corridor and are meant to inspire those who see them. Also, a new outdoor wayfinding sign was installed. This latest project was accomplished with 200 hours of volunteer time.

Countless hours of work by the SHS Key Club have been given over the past four years. Work has included imagining the possibilities, submitting proposals for approval, planning work days, coordinating volunteers, sweeping the track’s entirety and west ramp entrance, washing surfaces, and painting railings, doors, and walls. The goal has been to make a difference at Springville High School and give ownership and pride to its students who love their school and community.

Future Key Club indoor track projects are already in planning stages. The next project will be this May helping the graduating Class of 2018 join their fellow former SHS seniors in leaving their mark with individuals’ red handprints on the “Remember the Red” wall. This commemorative wall is found on the north end of SHS’ indoor track and is a newer SHS tradition started by the SHS Key Club in 2014.

Take the opportunity to visit Springville High School’s indoor track, do a few laps, and see the results accomplished by the many who have chosen to serve a well-loved school in a way that is sure to keep on giving.
