In De­cem­ber, Cathay Poulsen and Juan Patino, both stu­dents at Springville Ju­nior High School, were awarded the Mayor’s Com­mu­nity Youth Recog­ni­tion Award at a meet­ing of the Springville City Coun­cil. They were be­ing rec­og­nized and hon­ored for their pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to the com­mu­nity and their school.

Cathay is a sev­enth-grader and her teacher, Tara Pina, com­ments that “Cathay sin­cerely cares about her ed­u­ca­tion as well as oth­ers’. She also is an ally to those in need by go­ing out of her way to in­clude and in­volve ev­ery­one.” Pina de­scribes Cathay as a hard worker and an ex­am­ple to other stu­dents when they see her pas­sion and ex­cite­ment for ed­u­ca­tion.

Juan Patino is a ninth-grader and cur­rently serves on the Springville Ju­nior High Stu­dent Coun­cil. Juan was nom­i­nated for this award by his teacher Lori Caras. She com­mends Juan for serv­ing oth­ers and work­ing hard. She sees him be­ing a friend to ev­ery­one he comes in con­tact with. He is al­ways smil­ing and is al­ways very po­lite and re­spect­ful. He is very con­sci­en­tious in his work.

Cathay is the daugh­ter of Emmy and Richard Poulsen. Juan is the son of An­gel­ica and Juan Patino. The mayor, city coun­cil, SJHS and the com­mu­nity of Springville con­grat­u­late th­ese stu­dents.

Mayor Wilford Clyde and the Springville City Coun­cil would like to en­cour­age all cit­i­zens to look out for stu­dents who are pos­i­tively con­tribut­ing or are over­com­ing ob­sta­cles to suc­ceed.
