Everyone gets to deal with many different jobs and career opportunities through doing internships at Spanish Fork High School. Whitney Hansen gets the wonderful chance to deal with babies found in the NICU (New Born Intensive Care Unit) at the Utah Valley Hospital in Provo, UT. All day she follows her mom and watches as she performs many different operations on babies that could be measured up against a regular dollar bill and the bill being bigger.

Students Play Gotcha

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 04/27/2011 - 07:51
GOTCHA! Few words can instill such fear in a student’s heart. But at Spanish Fork High School, this one definitely can. Squirt bottles are always within arm’s reach, and friends keep watch; this game always keeps students on edge. It’s a traditional game played at the school every year. Students pay to play - they all receive the name of another student, and then the hunt begins. One has to squirt that person to get them out. Then they get that person’s name, and have a new target. The last few weeks of school, this group is whittled down until one student is left standing.

SFHS Kenzie Beckstrom Makes a Hole In One

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 04/26/2011 - 08:57
In golf, a hole in one is just about as likely as winning the lottery in Utah. Impossible. But one of our very own Lady Don golfers succeeded in sinking the ball in a single shot. It was April 20, 2011, on a very tricky par 3 at Gladstan golf course. On the second hole, Kenzie Beckstrom smacked a high lofting shot with her pitching wedge. Kenzie said, “It landed on the green, and I expected it to be an easy putt for a birdie.” To her surprise, it just kept rolling straight for the cup. The suspense mounted as she and her fellow golfers watched the gradual descent towards the pin.

The Spanish Fork High School Japanese Club has challenged it's members and students school-wide to help with the enormous task of folding 1,000 paper cranes. Why one thousand paper cranes? As legend has it, there was once a young Japanese girl who was very sick and close to death. She had heard from people in her community that if one was to fold a thousand paper cranes, a wish would come true. So she began to fold, as did countless friends and loving strangers.
