She talked to the students about the importance of voting and not only do they have a voice in this country, but they can make a difference. The students enjoyed the presentation.
The Brookside student body was treated to a terrific taste of Christmas with the annual choir assembly from Springville Jr. High. Their voices were beautiful and the carols and songs were sung to perfection. The students all had fun joining in on the "Goin' On a Sleigh Ride" rap.
