On the morning of Wednesday, September 26th, some of our very own Payson High football players made a visit to Spring Lake Elementary school for their annual "Dads and Doughnuts" event. These players were able to substitute for the fathers that couldn't come, and spend time playing and eating donuts with the elementary students. The kids loved playing basketball and using the parachute with the football players.

During the induction ceremony, new members to the NHS were inducted into the society by reciting the NHS pledge. Scott Wilson, the assistant superintendent for Nebo School District, was a guest speaker at this event and he spoke about the butterfly effect. To round out this ceremony, Mary Ford catered dutch oven deliciousness.
