Earlier this month the students in Ariel Jordan’s Fitness for Life class at Springville’s Merit College Prep Academy helped local poet Dennis Marden Clark craft a poem. Five students (Jacob Swapp, Pablo Sauz, Jordan Swapp, Trevor Parry, and Jenny Miller) competed to decide how to order the lines in the poem that Clark wrote. It was a tight race, with each student running for one particular line while their fellow lovers of literacy cheered them on.

The poem shifted several times as the runners fought for their places but in the end their fleet feet determined the final poem. Click the link below and watch as muscle and determination craft words into poetry! Special thanks to Stephen Kunz for videography and Marvin Payne for the voice over.
