FSHS celebrated the Class of 2018's accomplishments and future with its 15th Annual Awards night held at 6 p.m. Monday, May 14. Over 70 students were recognized with scholarship awards worth nearly $2 million combined.

"A lot of hard work has been put into this over the past 12 years," FSHS Principal Tim Schlosser said. "Parents and grandparents, I can't thank you enough. I'm humbled to work with these young people as they move on into their careers, and it's amazing for a town our size to have this much support for young people."

Throughout the evening, students received awards provided by area universities, technical schools, organizations and businesses. The ceremony also included academic awards and special recognitions, including FSHS's longstanding Bethel Medal (won this year by Taegan Strain).

"The Bethel Medal is voted on by faculty and has been awarded since 1919," Schlosser said. "It is our oldest and most prestigious award."
