Th­ese stu­dents were nom­i­nated by their teach­ers, prin­ci­pals and coun­selors. Any­one in the com­mu­nity can nom­i­nate a Springville stu­dent they ob­serve be­ing a great ex­am­ple, pro­vid­ing ser­vice and over­all be­ing a pos­i­tive con­trib­u­tor to our great city.

Alek Ha­jdo is the son of Am­ber and Rafal Ha­jdo. Alek was nom­i­nated by his sec­ond-grade teacher Kel­lian Giles at Sage Creek El­e­men­tary School. Giles writes that Alek al­ways tries his best and en­cour­ages oth­ers to do the same. He is fair and makes an ef­fort to in­clude all his class­mates.

Ken­lee Hone is the daugh­ter of Ker­rie and Gary Hone. She is a sixth-grader at Cherry Creek El­e­men­tary School. She was nom­i­nated by both her Prin­ci­pal Mike Duncan and her for­mer teacher Ch­eryl Nielsen. Both nom­i­na­tors com­mented on Ken­lee’s bright smile in the hall­way and how she loves to serve those around her. She creates spe­cial art pieces for those who may need a “pick-me-up.”

Alan Bird is the son of El­iz­a­beth and Ge­orge Bird and at­tends Merit Acad­emy. Scott Jenk­ins, a coun­selor at Merit, praised Alan for be­ing an ex­cep­tional stu­dent. Alan has shared his tal­ents act­ing in school plays. Jenk­ins com­ments that Alan is also very de­pend­able and friendly while serv­ing on the stu­dent coun­cil and plan­ning many school ac­tiv­i­ties. He is hard-work­ing and bal­ances his large load of col­lege classes, ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties and ser­vice well.

Kirsten Hullinger, MJHS coun­selor and Hope Squad Ad­vi­sor, nom­i­nated Abi for be­ing kind, trust­wor­thy and con­cerned about those around her. Abi is friendly and al­ways has an en­cour­ag­ing word. She is al­ways will­ing to step in and of­fer to help.
