On Thursday, October 21, 2010, the Spanish Fork High School cheerleaders performed their Breast Cancer Awareness half-time. All of the songs that were mixed into the half-time were based on the theme of ‘never giving up’ and to ‘keep holding on.’ In the middle of their half-time, the cheerleaders took the time to hold up signs that spelled out “Never Give Up!” To end their performance, they got into a formation that made the Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon.

Despite their win on Thursday night against their in-town rivals Maple Mountain, the night was still an emotional one.

It was the long dreaded senior night. The football seniors were honored with fireworks, a loving crowd, and much more.

Spanish Fork High School’s FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) club try their hardest to do as much service as they can. They try to do a service project once a month. For the month of October, the presidency of the club decided to paint faces on pumpkins and give them to the Senior Center right across the street from the high school. The members of the club were invited to participate, and the club felt like this was a great way to give some holiday spirit to the elderly people who are in our area. It turned out to be a great service project for the FCCLA club.

Can Dons and Golden Eagles coincide peacefully? The answer is, absolutely. Even after the intensity of Thursday s football game, Spanish Fork vs. Maple Mountain, we could connect as friends once the game was over. Proof of this was in the surprisingly good turnout of students from both schools at the combined stomp that followed the game. Despite the fact that it was on a school night, the Debate Stomp after the Spanish Fork vs. Maple Mountain football game was a success. There were students from both SF and MM. It was a reunion of old friends and the beginning of new friendships.
