Nebo high school stu­dents do­nate to Fes­ti­val of Trees

Serve Daily - - FRONT PAGE - By Lana Hiskey

Span­ish Fork High School weld­ing stu­dents con­structed a spe­cial tree in 2016 to honor a for­mer Don, Ki­plyn Davis, that went miss­ing 20 years ago. This year would mark her 20th re­u­nion as a Span­ish Fork grad­u­ate. Ki­plyn loved life. She had a vi­brant per­son­al­ity and known as a so­cial “but­ter­fly.” The tree was then do­nated to the Fes­ti­val of Trees in Sandy, which raises money each year for Pri­mary Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal.

The tree and the three drift trikes hang­ing from the tree were de­signed and fab­ri­cated out of alu­minum by SFHS weld­ing stu­dents. The themes of “But­ter­flies” and “Fam­ily” were im­ple­mented through­out the project. The drift trikes were built to rep­re­sent a tra­di­tion at SFHS Weld­ing.

Weld­ing teacher Shaun Black said, “The weld­ing stu­dents re­ally en­joyed fab­ri­cat­ing the drift trikes to rep­re­sent a traS­pan­ish

di­tion here at SFHS Weld­ing and in mem­ory of a Don who will not be for­got­ten. We ap­pre­ci­ated the op­por­tu­nity to serve the com­mu­nity.”

Span­ish Fork High School weld­ing stu­dents and teacher ex­press their ap­pre­ci­a­tion to SAPA Ex­tru­sions, SF Wal­mart, RM Davis Con­struc­tion, Outer Beauty Supply, Ideal Ma­chine, MSquared Rac­ing, Clair and Brenda Chris­tensen fam­ily, Matt and Marcy Romero, Stacy Hayward, Allen Moore, Jo­celin Blohm, Chan dee Nor­ris,D&DTruc king, Thurza Gor­don, Jill John­son, Carolyn, Su­san and Bar­bara.

The Span­ish Fork High School FFA also gave a gift of love to the Fes­ti­val of Trees. The of­fi­cers chose the theme of “Color Christ­mas” for their tree and stu­dents do­nated move than 250 col­or­ing books, sets of crayons, mark­ers and col­ored pen­cils to help with the tree. In ad­di­tion, FFA mem­bers spent time mak­ing and col­or­ing or­na­ments.

FFA ad­viser Kaylee Lid­di­ard said, “We would like to thank all of those who made the tree a suc­cess.” The SFHS FFA’S tree was pur­chased by an anony­mous spon­sor for $1,900.
