Springville Mayor Recog­ni­tion

Serve Daily - - NEWS - By Shan­non Acor

Hard work­ing, pos­i­tive, com­pas­sion­ate and kind are all words that were used to de­scribe three fan­tas­tic stu­dents at Tues­day’s Springville City Coun­cil Meet­ing. Nom­i­na­tions for the Mayor’s Recog­ni­tion Award are turned into Springville City through­out the month as cit­i­zens, teach­ers and neigh­bors spot great kids do­ing good things and work­ing hard. This month’s awards were handed out by Coun­cil­man Craig Conover.

The first award went to Springville High School Ju­nior, Spencer Gwill­liam. He was nom­i­nated “se­cretly” by fel­low stu­dents as they were im­pressed with how kind and con­sid­er­ate he is. They wrote “he al­ways opens the door for oth­ers and greets them by name with a smile as they ar­rive to class.” Spencer’s proud par­ents are Ja­son and Sa­man­tha Gwilliam. West­side El­e­men­tary Stu­dents, Averi Smith and Peter Hill, were also rec­og­nized. Both are 6th graders and were nom­i­nated by their teacher Ginger Whit­ney. Mrs. Whit­ney shared, “Averi al­ways has a smile on her face. She is an ex­am­ple to oth­ers. She pushes her­self when learn­ing dif­fi­cult con­cepts and is not afraid to ask for help.” She de­scribes Peter as “a tal­ented young man. He con­trib­utes greatly in the class­room. He has in­sight­ful com­ments. He is help­ful to oth­ers.” Averi’s par­ents are Todd and Amy Smith. Peter Hill is the son of Dan and Heather Hill.

Help us cel­e­brate our youth! Call or email in your nom­i­na­tion to­day to the “Com­mu­ni­ties that Care” Co­or­di­na­tor at Springville City 801-491-7823 or sacor@springville.org.
