Busy as a bee

McKenna Nuzman

McKenna Nuzman is a Junior attending Springville High School.  She is currently doing an internship at Art City Elementary. She enjoys children, for her long term goal she wants to work in the nursery. When she is interning she usually grades assignments, makes sure everyone is on task, and help them with their assignments.

McKenna loves to help kids but nursing is what she is headed towards. She did the intern because she thought it would be fun.

McKenna advises that if you love the field, you should intern while you are in high school. Even though this is not her ideal career she had enjoyed this adventure very much .

Intern Helps Man’s Best Friend

By Raymond Jablonsky, SHS Staff Writer
Mosiah Rios

Mosiah Rios is working an internship at All About Pets in Provo.  Rios is very active with the animals.  He helps with animal checkups, exams, and dental aid.  Not all of Rios’s duties are so glamorous though.  He also has the responsibilities of cleaning up after surgeries, cleaning kennels, and cleaning up animal waste.

Rios’ love of animals is what led him to do this internship.  Not only does he love the animal part of this internship, he is fascinated by the medical side as well.  Rios had the amazing opportunity to watch a C-section and assisted in cleaning up the new born puppies.  His favorite part of that experience was seeing the mother interact with her newborns. 

“It has been beneficial.  I would recommend it because there is a lot of interactions and new experiences,” said Rios.

Rios is very interested in this line of work.  He plans on attending Southern Utah University and major in animal science in order to become a veterinarian.   Rios’ love of animals will help him become a great veterinarian that people will trust.

Kinsley Foster

Springville High senior Kinsley Foster is currently interning at Cherry Creek Elementary.  Her duties at the school were to reteach concepts to the students who didn’t understand them the first time around.

Although she interned at the school, she thinks that she wants to go into the pharmacy area. After interning for a term, she realized that she never really wanted to teach, she just loves kids.

“I love when I get love letters and cool paper airplanes!” Foster said of her experience at Cherry Creek.

Foster plans on attending Utah Valley University and does not know what she wants to major in yet.

Colton Carroll interns at Family Pet Hospital with the intention to eventually major in veterinary medicine at Utah State University. The reason Carroll wants to be a vet is, “Because I like working with my animals and keeping them in proper health,” said Carroll.

After working this internship for a term, Carroll is just as interested, if not more, in his internship and future career. Working as a vet is full of fun experiences for everyone, from clipping nails to performing surgeries.

Ariana Winegar

Ariana Winegar is currently working as a helper at Hobble Creek Elementary.  Some of her duties include working with the students to ensure that they accomplish their tasks and answer questions.

Winegar is interested in this type of work, she says, “Because I really like being around kids, and my sister and some of my friends are elementary school teachers, and they love it.  So, I wanted to see if I liked it.  Sometimes I get frustrated because the students only listen to us half of the time.  But, other than that, I love it,” said Winegar.

Winegar said that she has a lot of fun working with the students and enjoys being with them.

“Every day is different, fun and exciting,” said Winegar.  She also says that having worked at the elementary school has prepared her for a future job and career.

“I would recommend an internship to other students because I really love doing it,” said Winegar.

Winegar is planning on attending BYU Idaho after completing high school.

SHS Intern Studying to be a Teacher

By Shane Roberts, SHS Staff Writer
Christina Nolasco

Christina Nolasco, Junior at Springville High, is studying to be a teacher at Art City Elementary. After interning at Art City Elementary for a term, Nolasco said she was still interested in this line of work.

“Yes, I would still like to be a teacher. It is super fun going and helping students.  I don’t think I will teach elementary because it’s not really what I am looking for,” said Nolasco.

Nolasco has been interested in this line of work for quite a while; she has always been good at helping people understand concepts so it would be the perfect occupation for her.  Nolasco recommends this line of work to others as beneficial because “It’s awesome. I had the chance to actually teach some of the children and that allowed me to see how I teach,” said Nolasco.

Some of Nolasco’s duties include helping students, teaching lessons, and assisting the specialty classes if needed.

One fun experience Nolasco has had at her internship is, “I went to P.E. with them and we played with the parachute and had so much fun. All of the students loved me, and I had a really fun time. She plans on attending Brigham Young University to earn a degree and teaching certificate.

TSA Robotics Competition

TSA Robotics Team 2012

Last month Springville High’s Robotics team attended their first Utah State TSA Conference and competition. Springville did an amazing job for their first experience. The Robotics team placed
15 out of 23 teams competing and the Construction Renovation Team (Allison Brown and Declan Webster) placed 2nd.

This was Springville's first year as a TSA (Technology Student Association) chapter; they continue to make a name for themselves in this organization and will continue to do so in the future. TSA has a great state conference because there is something for everyone--from fashion design to robotics.

Those in attendance were Allison Brown, Declan Webster, Timo Elliot, Jason Averett, Noah Schmitz, Davis Agle, Eric Harrison, and Mitchel Ohman.
