Nicole Koyle, a senior at Spanish Fork High School, knows first hand that it pays to get As. She is the recipient of a $1,000 scholarship from Zion's Bank and the Pays for As program. Representatives from Zion's Bank surprised Nicole with the award at the Homecoming assembly in September. 

"I didn't have any idea," said Koyle.

Koyle qualified for the scholarship by taking her report cards to Zions Bank where she earned $1 for each A. She said she knew that there was a drawing for a scholarship but didn't think much about it.

It's time to REACH out to other people around you. That's the message students at Spanish Fork High School got this week as Character Counts Week kicked off the Reach program at our school.

Reach is a program run by students to encourage others to build connections and make sure everyone feels valued and connected.

Surveys conducted with students at SFHS revealed at roughly 130 students feel like they have no other person, student or teacher, that they connect with, explained Daniel Stodtmeister, a member of the Reach leadership team.
