Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 05/26/2011 - 08:06
The Career, Technology, and Education classes show cased some of their incredible projects this year. On the Spanish Fork High School quad, students displayed their hard work and dedication through their cars, trucks, trailers, barbeques, cabinets, book shelves, and even a circular swing that proved to be the highlight of the items. Although some of the tastiest lunches served this year came from pulled pork and hot dogs fired up on the barbeques. It is amazing what high school students can build when led by capable teachers.

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.

The past months of hard yet entertaining work made by the SFHS instrumental music classes met their climax on Wednesday night, May 11th, at 7:00 PM. Music that originated from many different time periods was performed that night, ranging from Star wars and Pirates of the Caribbean to Finlandia and Carnival of the Animals. Ms. Magelby, the instrumental music instructor at SFHS, worked the students in both Band and Orchestra extremely hard over the last two weeks, and the results turned out to be great.

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.

On May 17, Spanish Fork High School held their assembly honoring those students who received scholarships for various skills, academics, volunteer work, and talents. All seniors gathered to watch their fellow scholars walk onstage and accept their papers from a representative of the scholarship, as well as shake hands (and even give hugs) to the administration and councilors. Loud rounds of applause were given as each student’s name was announced, everyone knowing the struggles and hard work put into the academic excellence needed for the financial support of college.
