On Thursday, February 22, Springville High FFA members had a once in a lifetime opportunity to have a National FFA Officer, Bryce Cluff, visit us here in Utah. This only happens about once every ten years since national officers are over regions and can’t be everywhere.

We were honored to host Western Regional Vice President, Bryce Cluff, from Arizona, for a fun filled day. We began our day at Orem High school getting to know Bryce and other FFA members from around the valley. From there we made our way to Westlake High school to rub shoulders with even more members and enjoy a BBQ luncheon with our national officer and several of our Utah State FFA officers. We then made our way back to Orem high school to construct bud vases a service project. The best part came when we finished the bud vases and delivered them to TREEO, a retirement community, to give to elderly citizens. The joy on their faces made the whole experience worth it. Our day didn’t end there. Our own Springville High FFA chapter then hosted a multi-chapter activity of ice skating at the Peaks Arena in Provo. We had a great day and great experiences our Springville High FFA members will cherish.

SafeUT Awareness Days February 22 & 23

Submitted by carey.white on Thu, 2018-02-22 13:04

In light of the recent events in Florida and other tragedies that have happened around the country, Nebo School District is teaming up with KSL on February 22, 2018, as we Stand Up for a Safe Utah. Utah has a very powerful resource and that is the SafeUT app.  As you all know, the SafeUT app provides real-time crisis intervention and has been proven to save lives and stop planned school attacks. 

Our goal is to make sure that every parent, student and educator is aware of the app and has it downloaded on their phone.

Throughout the day, KSL will be highlighting all that the app can do, the history behind it, the success stories and much more. In addition, there will be some fun for the students. Below is the outline to encourage student involvement:

  • Encourage your friends to download the app
  • Use hashtag #SafeUT on posts

KSL Contest:

  • Individuals will be able to share a screenshot of their phone with the app downloaded for a chance to win a $50 VISA card
  • These screenshots will need to be posted in the contest on the KSL TV Facebook page
  • The school that is tagged the most by their students will receive 100 pizzas from KSL!
  • The contest will start Thursday, February 22 and Friday, February 23 at 3 p.m.

Watch KSL News at 5 p.m. on Friday to see which school will be receiving 100 pizzas!
