Utah Community Credit Union (UCCU) has partnered with the Utah High School Athletics Association to honor a local high school student each week.  The student chosen is someone who makes assisting others a priority. Tonight the UCCU Assist Scholarship is being presented to a Springville High School student, Sara Powell.
