Mrs. Aubrey Thornock, a veteran of Springville High school, has recently joined the ranks as one of our newest counselors.
For the past four years at SHS, she has filled the roles of tracker, secretary for special needs students, and counseling intern.
“I love the feel of the school. The students, staff, they all bring great school spirit,” said Thornock.
Thornock gained an undergraduate degree at Southern Utah University and is currently working on her Masters at Utah State University. She enjoys helping the students of SHS.
“I originally wanted to be a professional counselor, but I gradually leaned toward high school after working here,” said Thornock.
However, the most rewarding experience for Thornock has been helping seniors who are falling behind and are at risk of not graduating.
Thornock said, “Some people branded them as dropouts; but, I stuck with them, and they worked to be able to graduate.”
Outside of school, however, she enjoys the company of her husband and her Australian shepherd Koda. She also plays the bagpipes and loves to read books by her favorite author, Roald Dahl.
