Here’s to our Heroes at Art City Elementary School. Ted Murray, resident and employee of Springville City, has been mowing the Art City Elementary fields for over 20 years. Ted is a hero to Art City because he comes every Wednesday to mow the field. He takes time to move the equipment up to the building. He takes pride in every lawn that he mows, when he mows the football field he is careful to have every line just right so it looks good for game night. His grandchildren also think he is a hero. Thank you, Ted for all of your years of hard work and service.
