Springville Junior High may seem like a little school, in a relatively smallish town, but some of our very own students have done some great things, for example, 7th Grader, Cooper Acor, was invited by Representative Francis Gibson to the State Capital on Tuesday to lead the House of Representatives in the Pledge of Allegiance on the House Floor. Cooper was extended the invitation after he responded to an email Gibson had sent to his constituents asking for a volunteer. Cooper is a Boy Scout in Troop 67 of the Hobble Creek District and explained to Gibson he was currently working on his Citizenship in the Nation Merit Badge. After leading the Pledge of Allegiance, Cooper enjoyed a VIP tour of the State Capital as well as an explanation of how a bill becomes a law during the Legislative Session.

Charles Brenchley said “I think that's very intriguing, and it shows just how far you can go, regardless of your background.”

Way to go Cooper!
