Sewing Teacher at Springville High Retires

By Tayli Smallcomb and Aaron Brown, SHS Staff Writers
Mrs. Ann Penrod

Mrs. Ann Penrod has been teaching at Springville High School for 22 years. Before Springville, she taught in Alpine School District. This year she will retire. She has taught clothing, sewing, foods, adult roles, and child development.

She is married to the Principal of Mapleton Mountain High School, has five children, and twelve grandchildren. After retirement, she plans to play with her grandchildren. Her most memorable experience when teaching was when she taught all of her children and one of her granddaughters.

 “We have the nicest students,” Penrod says.  Mrs. Penrod will miss many aspects of Springville High School, but most important she says she will miss the students.

 “I just love Springville High School, it’s the best,” said Penrod.

Retiring SHS Teacher, Mrs. Sue Davis

Mrs. Sue Davis

Mrs. Sue Davis has been teaching a total of thirty four years, three of which were spent at Springville High.  She has taught all levels of English – sophomore to senior, honors classes, A.P. Language and Creative Writing.  After her retirement she plans to write, travel, garden, and live on Lopez Island and watch the sea. 

Davis is married with two daughters-- Camelia who is twenty five and Olivia who is nineteen.  What she will miss most at Springville High is her students and the English Department.  She feels as Thoreau did when he wrote “… it seemed to me that I had several more lives to live, and I could not spare any more time for this one.” Namaste, S.H.S!

Mike Brown, principal of Springville High School, and other colleagues who nominated Dr. Tsugawa for the Sorenson Legacy Award wrote, “Dr. Tsugawa is a respected advocate for the arts.”  His involvement as a public school music educator, teacher mentor, and senior adult music advocate is “evidence of the lasting legacy of music education experiences Dr. Tsugawa has imparted for his students, his profession, and the community.  His contributions to music teaching and learning will ensure a tradition of quality music education for generations.”  

Congratulations, Dr. Tsugawa!

Don’t Text and Drive

by Casey Thobe and Candice Lee, SHS Staff Writers
Leslee Hensen

On Wednesday, April 24, Springville High sponsored an after school assembly, “Don’t Drive Stupid.” Keynote speaker was Leslee Hensen who related a personal story when she was injured and her husband killed by someone texting and driving. Driving and texting are not something to boast about. You might think it’s a talent; but it’s not. It will cause accidents, crashes, and lawsuits, and deaths.

Hensen told the student body about how she was in the Provo Hospital ICU (intensive care unit) for 15 days. She suffered from brain and head trauma that included more than 5,000 stiches with more surgery to come. She lost her husband to this accident because of someone texting and driving. At the assembly Leslee touched many students and teachers’ hearts with her story. She may have even convinced some people to stop texting and driving.

Although Henson had a hard time talking about it, she pulled through and told her story of why it is not safe to text and drive. According to Haley Warner, Leslee and Dave’s daughter, Dave pushed Leslee out of the way and took the impact himself. Because of Dave, Leslee is here today talking about her accident to teenagers, adults, and even the elderly.

Texting while driving is not a “skill” one wishes to acquire; it’s nothing you should even try to do, because if you do, it might just take someone’s life away or yours. Accidents can happen at any moment, even if you are not the one who is texting and driving, you could be the next one to get into a car accident because of it. Or, who knows, you could be the cause of an accident because you were the one texting and driving.

Springville Students attend DECA Nationals

By Codie Zamora

At the National DECA Competition held earlier this month in Anaheim, California, Codie Zamora, Caroline Krieger, and Elizabeth White participated in the Learn and Earn category. In this category, Springville High students wrote a thirty page paper about the DECA competition hosted by Springville High School, the “DECA Devil Invitational.” The paper consisted of the organization and implementation of the competition, the process of running the competition, and the business aspects that contributed to the success of the “DECA Devil Invitational.” A fifteen minute presentation was created to present Springville’s paper and the success of the learning and earning experience in hosting the “DECA Devil Invitational.”

Matt Niu also competed at nationals in the Principles of Marketing category. Matt was tested on his knowledge of business principles and marketing concepts. He was a finalist in his group category. Springville High students had an opportunity to represent the level of excellence that Springville High School strives to achieve. Students were able to experience opportunities to meet and interact with other DECA members across the nation and to represent our local community, school, and state of Utah.
