Kiva VanAusdal is one of the many great 8th graders here at Springville Junior High. One of Kiva’s favorite things to do is bake, and if she could learn to do anything she would want to learn how to draw. “My favorite part of school is sewing class, lunchtime, and being with my friends.” Her favorite class is sewing because she has a bunch of friends in that class, and you get to do a bunch of fun projects. Kiva has always looked up to her parents. Kiva’s favorite place she has ever traveled to is Hawaii.

Submitted by tara.pina on Mon, 10/19/2020 - 13:01

Lillian Miller loves being athletic. She is the setter on the Springville High School sophomore volleyball team. She loves to play because she has worked really hard to get this far. She said “It's cool to be on a higher level.” which is her favorite thing about being on a high school team. “Game days are something to look forward to during the day.” Lilly recommends playing a sport because “It keeps you active.” So does doing push-ups. Every day since January her family has been doing a challenge. “You have to add one pushup a day.” As of October 9th she is at 283 pushups. On the 10th she will do 284 pushups and so on and so forth. The idea for the challenge came from her aunt and now only Lilly and her brother are left.

As fast as she can, she pushes herself to run across the finish line. Satisfyingly she stops and catches her breath. She may not have gotten first place, but she won.

Jocee Blakely is a 9th grader here at Springville Jr, but she also runs on the Springville High school JV cross country team. She’s been running cross country since her 7th grade year. Besides that she likes running, she also said that she likes the team aspect of the sport. The team cheers the others on, no matter what. They practice Monday through Friday at the high school, and then go 8-10 miles alone on Saturday.

Student Spotlight: Kenley O’Bannon

Submitted by tara.pina on Mon, 10/19/2020 - 11:54

Jesse Owens once said, “We all have dreams but in order to make dreams into reality it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.” I think this is a perfect example of one of our seventh graders, Kenley O’Bannon. Kenley O’Bannon is a seventh-grader here at SJHS and is certainly a bright student. She is very eager to learn and is always looking out for others. She is really liking Jr. High so far, and she really enjoys how much positivity, kindness, and equality that is shown at school.
