The class of 2011 held their graduation ceremony on Tuesday, May 24 at the UVU Event Center at 2:00 p.m.
Kaitlin Urmston, a senior at Spanish Fork High School and Senior Class President, took 1st Place in the Javelin at the Utah High School 4A Track and Field Meet held at BYU. Kaitlin’s second throw in the last round was 123 feet which put her in 1st place. But her competitor threw for 125 feet which put Kailtin in 2nd place. So for Kaitlin’s last throw as a high school student, she put everything into it and made it 135 feet to earn her 1st place position. Kaitlin’s skills have proven gold medal quality on and off the field.
The 2010-2011 FFA school year went out with a bang. The term “Out with the old and in with the new” came about at the end of the year banquet. All of the senior officers gave their retiring addresses which was an honorary way for the FFA to show appreciation for all of their hard work. At the banquet the new officers were put into place for the ones that served over this past year.

On May 20th, the students of SFHS were finally given their much anticipated yearbooks after getting out of school early to exchange and sign books, some saying goodbye for the last time. Seniors were given their books first, leaving juniors and sophomores to wait impatiently for a half hour that seemed like a lifetime. “This year’s yearbook was poppin’. It was better than last year’s, and the year before,” exclaimed Lavi Tuita, a senior happy about receiving her yearbook.
