Last fall, students at Payson High School launched a social media campaign to bring #BacontoPayson before the old building (made famous as the main set location of the iconic film Footloose) is closed and demolished later this year. The students’ hard work—which included Footloose flash mobs, staging Footloose the play and cardboard cutouts of Bacon—finally paid off.
