Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY - By Shan­non Acor

Springville City Coun­cil­man Chris Soren­son awarded two very de­serv­ing stu­dents the Springville Mayor’s Recog­ni­tion Award dur­ing Jan­uary’s Springville City Coun­cil Meet­ing.

Re­cip­i­ent Jaden Chris­tensen is in ninth grade at Maple­ton Ju­nior High School. He is the son of Holly and Mike Chris­tensen. MJHS coun­selor and HOPE Squad ad­vi­sor Kirsten Hullinger nom­i­nated Jaden. She said, “Jaden is truly a car­ing, thought­ful, friendly and kind young man. Jaden is very per­cep­tive of oth­ers’ feel­ings and has alerted me sev­eral times about stu­dents that are in need of help. He al­ways has a smile on his face and is quick to start up a con­ver­sa­tion with any­one and ev­ery­one. He is gen­uinely in­ter­ested in what the per­son has to say and is a won­der­ful lis­tener.”

Korri Cooper is a fifth-grader at Cherry Creek El­e­men­tary School. She is the daugh­ter of Jes­sica and Randy Cooper. She was nom­i­nated by her teacher Chaylce Peck, who said, “Korri is so pos­i­tive and a light to be around. She is so kind, gen­er­ous and a pos­i­tive in­flu­ence. She is a hard worker. She works end­lessly at im­prov­ing her­self. She is a great ex­am­ple to all around her. She lifts oth­ers to be their best selves.”

Springville’s mayor and city coun­cil en­cour­age you to look around and rec­og­nize those stu­dents who are reach­ing out to help oth­ers, striv­ing to be their best and pos­i­tively con­tribut­ing to the com­mu­nity.
