The intern highlight this week is Stephanie Muhlestein, who interns at the Spanish Fork City Library. She helps with all sorts of jobs, from putting books and movies away to helping little kids with coloring pictures during storytime. She can check books into the system but she can’t check them out to people. Muhlestein planned to go into something dealing with the library when she grows up, but her experience at the library might change that.
Welcome to Spanish Fork High School
Spanish Fork’s High School Shakespeare team went down to Southern Utah University to compete in the Utah Shakespearean Festival. Along with many other high schools in the state, schools from Arizona and Idaho, competed against each other for first, second, and third place in their events. The Team included Madison Hall, Jen Grzybowski, Tanner Holt, Katie Cable, Hannah Carson, Jared Tuckett, Bethany Hutchison, Kyle Crotts, Mathew Cole, with the help of their technicians Chris Cannon, and Brock Larson, and the direction of Brittany Foster.
Kay Thomas Perkins, a teacher at SFHS and the Red Cross sponsored a blood drive at Spanish Fork High School last week. Students could sign up for a time and had to pass an interview to qualify in order to donate their blood. The blood the Red Cross collected can be used for research or for other people. Emily McKinney, a senior, donated her blood last week. "I was really nervous beforehand but it was a good experience afterward because a lot of people really do need blood; Students at SFHS were very willing to donate and it was a good experience for the school."
On Friday, October 9th, seniors at Spanish Fork High School had the opportunity to attend a college fair and learn more about the colleges and universities in Utah. The fair started off with a video for all students on why they should pursue education after high school and the different types of postsecondary schools in Utah. The students then got to choose three different colleges to attend presentations on. The students were able to get plenty of good information on what the colleges they were considering were like.
Spanish Fork High School had the opportunity to send twelve students to an All State Choir. The Utah Music Education Association organized the All State Choirs. The top students from every high school in the state were given the opportunity to sing with talented singers from all over the state. The All State Choir totaled approximately 700 students. The students from SFHS were Christina Heywood, Karianne Nelson, Alex Singerman, Candace Wride, Andi Smiley, Ashley Davies, Taylor Bramall, Austin Leavitt, Evan Anderson, Garret Stirland, John Broomhead, and John Woodbrey.
