Each year, graduating players from the Spanish Fork High School Girls Soccer team are challenged to do something that will enhance and leave SFHS a better place than when they arrived. Coach Shane Ferrin said, “Doing service projects demonstrates that our girls care about this program and feel strongly about leaving a positive legacy.”

The project this year combined a need with creativity. Barrels were purchased and then turned into trash cans for use at the soccer field. Each barrel was painted with artwork reflecting Spanish Fork High School and the soccer program. The bright cans look great and help encourage the fans and visitors to keep the field area clean.

“Creating the trash barrels was a simple way to show our school pride and celebrate the time we enjoyed being part of the soccer team,” said Megan Hansen. “As Seniors, next year we all will have moved on but we now leave behind something that shows we made memories and remember life lessons learned here.”

Coach Ferrin concludes, “We have a remarkable group of seniors again this year. We are grateful for the impact for good that these young women make both on and off the field. Their willingness to give back to this program is something our school and community can be proud of.”
