Newly sworn in Springville Mayor Rick Child gave out his first Mayor’s Recognition Awards at January’s 2018 City Council Meeting. The Mayor and City Council recognized two Springville Junior High students who are dedicated to excellence and service.

Jocelyn Nolasco is in seventh grade. She was nominated by her teacher Emily Edman. Ms. Edman shared that Jocelyn goes up to the Salt Lake Homeless Shelter on a regular basis to help provide home cooked meals to the residents. Her family does this at their own expense. Jocelyn is often seen helping a neighbor clean their yard or home. It is Jocelyn’s goal to help make other’s lives a little better with less hunger, cold or suffering. Jocelyn’s parents are Eva Aguayo and Javier Nolasco.

Michelle Mumford is a ninth grader and was nominated by her teacher Katie Reese. Ms. Reese writes that Michelle is a good example, a true friend, a hard worker, a skilled leader and an exceptional student at all times. She quietly goes about pursuing excellence without any arrogance or self-promotion. Michelle is the daughter of Sara and Blake Mumford.

Springville City is honored to recognize the wonderful youth in the community. Nominate a student today at www.springville.org/mayoraward(link is external).
