Bailey Ewing

Senior, Bailey Ewing, is ending her high school career in an extremely beneficial way, with an internship.

 At Nance Family Dental, she is beginning her career choice of going into the medical field. She helps around office sterilizing the dentists equipment and observing the dentists and hygienists.

Ewing said, “I love being at an internship with employees that are really nice and teach me a lot. This seems like something I would do in the future. I like how I get to see a new patient every day and how every day is new.”

While she was working the other day, she was working with a little girl who was getting a procedure done that isn’t too pleasant. The little girl soothed herself and sang ‘Frozen’ songs to herself while she cried.

Bailey is planning on continuing on with this career as she makes her way south to Southern Utah University for college after she graduates from SHS. She even is thinking about carrying on to medical school.

One quote that keeps Bailey going is, “The only person you should try to be better than, is the person you were yesterday.” –Anonymous

Addie Harmon

Addie Harmon is an Intern at Sage Creek Elementary; she helps Mrs. Giles with her second grade class. Harmon enjoys helping at Sage Creek Elementary. She actually attended Sage Creek when she was in elementary school and had Mrs. Giles as a 5th grade teacher. Some of her duties include helping to grade papers, reading to the students, and just helping with various classroom tasks. Harmon is still considering whether or not to pursue a career in elementary education, but she is still undecided.

Harmon is a happy, loving, and giving person. She loves children. Every time she goes to the school, the students give her a hug and call her Miss Addie which Harmon thinks is “really cute.” One time when the students were doing an art project, one of the students put paper in her hair and told her she had to have it in hair for the whole day; and, being her cute self, she did. Harmon is fun and a great friend. Springville High is proud to have Addie Harmon represents us well in the educational community.

This week the Springville High varsity boys basketball team had a tough game as they faced off against the Provo Bulldogs at home, final score 48-36, in favor of the Bulldogs.  From start to finish this game had everyone on the edge of their seat stomping their feet and cheering the team on. 

Although the boys lost, the crowd was pleased to see the team still fighting until the final buzzer sounded.  With the start of region games, our Red Devils have a lot of good, local teams to look forward to playing.   Make sure to come out and support our Mighty Red Devils in all of their upcoming games.

On Saturday, January 10, Springville High held its annual MORP dance sponsored by Springville’s Dance Company.  With the crazy theme of “Tacky Tourists,” everyone showed up as something different.  Even with the flood of Hawaiian t-shirts, we still had a good amount of hikers and even some France inspired outfits. The creativity was endless.

Couples had the chance to get their pictures taken in the dance room, if they chanced to take a break from the awesome DJs that provided the music. They rocked the whole gymnasium; and, even after the dance, it seemed like the excitement of the party never ended.

Ryan Treasure

Springville High Junior Ryan Treasure works with special ed. students in peer tutoring.  Ryan has a great reputation for being an amazing student.  

Mr. Nic Rowley said, “I have been told by many teachers that he is a good student.  He has a natural ability to work and communicate with the students.”

Treasure decided to enroll as a peer tutor because he had an extra credit, but he grew to love the class and the experiences he took away from it.  

Treasure explained why he likes the class saying, “They have a hard time sometimes, and it makes you feel good to be able to help them.”

For two years Treasure has participated in the peer tutoring class.  He helps the special needs students stay on task and help get their work done.  We asked Treasure if he had any stand out experiences; and, he recalled helping Andy Heggs (a friend he gained from the class) on his paper and being able to see Heggs get a good grade on it as well. Although Ryan doesn’t see this as a future career, he is glad he took the class and he was able to gain the friendships and experiences from it.   Ryan Treasure truly exemplifies part of our school mission:  United in Service.
