Serve Daily - - FOSTERING INNOVATION - By Shan­non Acor

Two out­stand­ing stu­dents were awarded the Springville Mayor’s Recog­ni­tion Award in Fe­bru­ary. Cherry Creek Ele­men­tary School stu­dent Anna Cald­well was nom­i­nated by her sixth-grade teacher Sarah Sum­sion. Sum­sion has been im­pressed by Anna’s con­stant dis­play of ser­vice and lead­er­ship. Anna has served as her class pres­i­dent and was also cho­sen to be a Light­house Rep­re­sen­ta­tive as­so­ci­ated with her school’s Leader in Me pro­gram.

Sum­sion de­scribes Anna as al­ways smil­ing and pos­i­tive and one step ahead of her half the time. Anna is the daugh­ter of Justin and Tif­fany Cald­well.

Merit Prepara­tory Academy Se­nior Aaron Clay was nom­i­nated by his Ger­man teacher who hap­pens to also be his school coun­selor. Coun­selor Erika Whit­mer stated that Aaron is “one of the most tal­ented Ger­man stu­dents I’ve had the plea­sure of teach­ing in my 30 years as a Ger­man teacher.” Aaron has been in­volved in peer tu­tor­ing to not only help stu­dents pre­pare for col­lege and the ACT but also to help strug­gling stu­dents, es­pe­cially in math. Whit­mer said Aaron has her com­plete trust and re­spect. Aaron is the son of Michael and Chelsey Clay.

We are very proud to have such hon­or­able and hard-work­ing stu­dents in our com­mu­nity. Nom­i­nate one of your fa­vorite stu­dents to­day at www.springville.org/ may­oraward.
