Cheer Competition

Kjirsten Collins

The cheerleaders competed at the USA open competition last Saturday, after redoing their routine due to an injury the day before. They performed a perfect routine with zero deductions and placed first in their division.  They also won the title of grand champions, meaning they scored the highest overall points in all the divisions of the competition. This was their last local competition, and they're excited to compete at the national level in California in March. Congrats Cheerleaders! You rock!!

SFHS FFA gives Gift of Love

Kaylee Liddiard

Spanish Fork FFA gave a gift of love to the Festival of Trees held in Sandy Utah. This year the officers chose the theme of "Color Christmas." Students donated over 250 coloring books, sets of crayons, markers, and colored pencils to help with the tree. In addition, FFA members spent time making and coloring ornaments. We would like to thank all of those who made the tree a success. The officers delivered the tree Monday, November 28 to the South Towne Expo Center. All the donated trees were auctioned off with all the proceeds going to the Primary Children's Medical Center. This year SFHS FFAs tree was purchased by an anonymous sponsor for $1900. The tree was loved by children and committee members for being happy and cheerful.


SFHS Welding Builds and Donates Special “Social Butterfly” Christmas Tree in Memory of Kiplyn Davis

Shaun Black

A special tree that was constructed in the welding shop this year and it has special meaning; the tree was built to honor a former Don, Kiplyn Davis. This would mark her 20th year reunion as a Spanish Fork graduate. Her mother stated that, “Kiplyn was a 15 year old sophomore when she went missing from SFHS on May 2nd 1995. Although it is known she was murdered, her body has never been located. Her life ended too soon. Her family would never see her dreams of becoming a kindergarten teacher, having a marriage in an LDS temple and being a mother come true. Kiplyn loved life. She had a vibrant personality and enjoyed participating in any event or activity that involved being with family or friends - a social “butterfly” as referred to by her younger sister.”

Richard Davis, Kiplyn’s father visited the welding students and told them about Kiplyn’s personality and presented the idea of building a tree in her honor.  The Spanish Fork community really helped us out through donations of cash and materials. As a welding class we’d like to express our appreciation to: SAPA Extrusions, SF Walmart, RM Davis Construction, Outer Beauty Supply, Ideal Machine, MSquared Racing, Clair and Brenda Christensen family, Matt and Marcy Romero, Stacy Hayward, Allen Moore, Jocelin Blohm, Chandee Norris, D & D Trucking, Thurza Gordon, Jill Johnson, Carolyn, Susan, and Barbara.

The tree and the three drift trikes hanging from the tree were designed and fabricated out of aluminum by SFHS welding students. The themes of “Butterflies” and “Family” were implemented throughout the project.  The drift trikes were built to represent a tradition here at SFHS Welding that we have become known for and the students really enjoyed fabricating them in memory of a Don who will not be forgotten.

We appreciated the opportunity to serve the community,
