SFHS Welding Builds and Donates Special “Social Butterfly” Christmas Tree in Memory of Kiplyn Davis

Submitted by bonnie.beckstead on Wed, 11/30/2016 - 08:07

A special tree that was constructed in the welding shop this year and it has special meaning; the tree was built to honor a former Don, Kiplyn Davis. This would mark her 20th year reunion as a Spanish Fork graduate. Her mother stated that, “Kiplyn was a 15 year old sophomore when she went missing from SFHS on May 2nd 1995. Although it is known she was murdered, her body has never been located. Her life ended too soon. Her family would never see her dreams of becoming a kindergarten teacher, having a marriage in an LDS temple and being a mother come true.
