Members fo the National Honor Society made the Thanksgiving holiday a little brighter for several families in the Spanish Fork area with their annual Thanksgiving Dinner service project. The NHS gathered, packaged, and delivered turkeys and all the fixings to about 40 families on November 20, 2014.

The NHS gathers the names of families in need from other teachers at SFHS as well as local religious leaders. Using food donated during a food drive, the NHS makes sure each family gets a complete Thanksgiving meal.

An enthusiastic cast is ready to take the stage. Thursday, November 20 is opening night for The Drowsy Chaperone, the SFHS fall musical. The show is set in the 1920s and promises to be full of laughter and fun. 

"You'll laugh hysterically," said Kelsie Richards, a member of the cast.

Not only is the show funny, said many cast members, but it has been a great experience to be participants.

"You grow closer to people," said Tani Lee, also a member of the cast.

Kaitlin Hallam, a senior at Spanish Fork High School, won top honors at a welding and fabrication competition at the State Fair, bringing home a Blue Ribbon and Best of Show Ribbon.

Hallam built a flatbed, multi-purpose dump trailer for the competition. She competed against other welders including members from one school that submitted multiple entries.

"I think mine was more sophisticated structurally," Hallam said.
