National Honor Society Reaches Out to Haiti

The National Honor Society at Spanish Fork High School set a new goal for the whole school last week. They, as part of their Character Counts Week, decided to try and gather 900 dollars and personal hygiene items for the people in Haiti. They picked the number 900 because there are just barely over 900 students in the school, due to the boundary changes these past two years. They figure that if every student donated just one dollar, hygiene item, and wrote one letter, they’d have enough to make a difference to the people suffering from the terrible earth quake.

Ever child knows what they want to be when they grow up, right? Wrong. That is why the seventh grade “Job Shadow” program is giving students a first-hand opportunity to explore different career options. Seventh grader Taylor Harrison, an aspiring pro-ball player, spent the day job shadowing his grandmother at Spanish Fork High School’s assistant campus supervisor, Becky Ottesen. Taylor spent the day with Ottesen giving parking tickets and driving a golf cart, which Grandma said was his favorite part. “Taylor has great leadership skills,” Ottesen says.
