Several students from Springville High School, led by History teacher Mr. Lister, attended the Close Up Washington DC program at the end of November. These students took workshops on the political process, toured historical sites, met prominent leaders, and visited national monuments. They even got to see "A Christmas Carol" in Ford's Theater. It was a great educational experience for all who attended.
Congratulations to the following students who were nominated by faculty from the Science Department:
Andrew Foster, nominated by Mrs. Beagley. "Andrew is super fun, always engaged, and asking good questions. Always works hard and does the assignments! Never makes excuses and is always on time and present in class!"
Mrs. Demmi Nava-Zapien, a teacher at Springville High School, was invited to be a keynote speaker at the recent Latinos In Action Gala held at Thanksgiving Point. As an LIA Alumni and now, an LIA Teacher at Springville High, Demmi shared the story of her life’s journey to help others and the struggles she was able to overcome. In addition to being able to present at the conference, Demmi took 25 of her students to the Gala and they were able to help with seating guests, checking coats, presenting awards, and running the silent auction.
