Local Author Inspires Students

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

On January 21, 2010, Maple Mountain High School’s Internship Program sponsored “Window on the Workplace,” which invited local author J. Scott Savage as their guest speaker.  Savage was not always a writer, and writing had never been his dream. Before he started writing, Savage worked for a company that made little creatures that moved around the computer screen and talked to you. Because of the downturn in the economy, he found himself traveling a lot; this is where the idea for his first published book, Cutting Edge, came.

The very first MMHS Spirit Bowl was a hit when MMHS students came together Friday to compete in games for the Golden trophy. Five events made up the competition, each event with students from each game that volunteered to play.   The Spirit Bowl stated off with a class cheer off. Seniors, even with the smallest class, yelled their loudest while juniors and sophomore responded with spirited cheers of their own. Following the cheer off, a rowdy game of musical chairs started. With about twenty students running to a row of chairs at the same time, it was a miracle no one

Lady Golden Eagles Battle Dons

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

On Tuesday, January 19, the Maple Mountain High School Varsity Girls’ basketball team had an intense and challenging game against Spanish Fork High School which ended in favor of the Lady Dons 50-43. The Lady Golden Eagles had a slow start against Spanish Fork letting them out score them by six in the first quarter.  But as the game continued, the girls certainly found the motivation they needed to end the second quarter with Maple Mountain outscoring Spanish Fork by 3.
