On August 29 Springville FFA received a grant from Tractor Supply Company. The company gave Springville FFA $700.  The money will be used for mentoring special needs children raising pigs this year. Springville FFA received the money because they did a work day, helping with workshops. They made butter and told stories to children.  They also demonstrated to the children how to be safe on the farm when working around equipment.  It was a good experience for the FFA club to help children and teach them about agriculture.

Mr. D

For over thirty years Richard Drollinger (“Mr. D”) taught at Springville High School.   From 1962-1996 he filled the minds of thousands of students with knowledge and brought a fun and different learning experience to our school.

Since his retirement, he came back to Springville High School and has been substituting since 2000. Drollinger loves to teach and loves substituting classes. He said that his favorite part of teaching is that he loves to see students succeed in areas that they thought they originally could not.

“I think teaching should be fun,” said Drollinger, when asked why he has been teaching for so long.

Recently, Springville City awarded Drollinger with the “Citizen of the Year” award.  Drollinger never thought that he would be considered for this award, and he thinks that it is such an honor to win.  The city then held a dinner in Drollinger’s honor and presented him with a plaque for winning “Citizen of the Year.”

“Everyone who comes into contact with Mr. Drollinger instantly loves him; he has a personality that is contagious.  He makes you feel like you’re his best friend,” said Mrs. Carey S. White, SHS Teacher.

In his spare time, Drollinger loves to read.  But, when he is not reading, he is gardening and growing plants that he finds fun and different.

“I would read an aspirin bottle if I couldn’t find anything else,” said Drollinger.

Congratulations to Mr. Drollinger for winning this fantastic award and we thank him for everything he does for us at Springville High.

Dan Humble shares drawing of ASL and Astronomy

Dan Humble, Senior at Springville high school, has been drawing his whole life.  Humble is a gifted artist and is now being recognized for it. The picture he drew with a “cheap black pencil” depicts a young girl looking at the moon as she produces the ASL sign for the moon.

He was researching deaf Astronomers.  He argued that deafness did not interfere with the work because “sound is not an element of astronomy."  He wanted to show that deaf people love and enjoy many of the same things hearing people do and that deafness in no way interferes with a person's ability to become an astronomer. 

ASL teacher, Mrs. Sarah Brough, says that she is so proud of Humble’s work in and outside of class.

Thank you Dan for sharing your artwork with SHS.
