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 Central Bank is happy to honor Glen Wood for the positive impact he’s had on the Payson community by presenting him with the Central Bank Good Citizen Award. Wood received the award at Central Bank’s Payson Office Open House on Wednesday, February 27.

Wood is a life-long resident of Payson and has been the owner of the local Napa Auto Parts store for the last 30 years. From a young age, he was interested in anything that had wheels. As a teenager, Wood’s father promised him the keys to an old family car—as long as he could fix it up and get it running again. This challenge often brought Wood torthe local Napa Auto Parts store, where his affinity for cars and frequent visits resulted in his first job and the beginning of a life-long career path.

“I enjoy giving back to my local community that has blessed me in so many ways over the years,” said Wood.

Wood has had many opportunities to work with members of the Payson community and share his passion for anything with an engine. Each year Wood participates in organizing the Onion Days Car Show. Proceeds from this event are put into a scholarship fund for graduating high school students and awarded to individuals who demonstrate a strongrservice ethic.

Wood also serves the community of Payson in various other ways, including: participating in the local Kiwanis Club, reading to young students in the Head Start Program, volunteering his time to local youth programs and events (sports teams, high school theatre and debate teams, and the FFA), annually recertifying the Automotive Service Excellence Program at Payson High School and Mountainland Technical College, raising support for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation in conjunction with the Napa Group, selling tickets for the Payson Community Theatre, and even donating blood on a regular basis at the Red Cross.
