FHC Publications Wins Several Spring Awards

FHC Publications received some amazing results from the Missouri Journalism Education Association, the state's biggest scholastic journalism organization, and their contests. Members of all the department’s publications were honored for their work, validating another year of truly outstanding effort and creativity.

"These results are just a reflection of the quality of work publications students do on a daily basis,” said Matthew Schott, FHC Publications Advisor and 2017-18 FHC Teacher of the Year. “When students have talent and are able to combine it with a vision and dedication, they're able to create amazing journalism for our school to share in." 

Skylar Laird, a senior, was the first student in FHC Publications history to be named to MJEA's all-state journalism team (this is the third year for the team). Ten Missouri high school media staff members were also named to the 2018 All-State Journalism Team, sponsored by the Missouri Journalism Education Association.

The All-State Journalism Team recognizes those students who have proven themselves to be indispensable to their respective school media, recognizing those students who are “Most Valuable Players” — students whose leadership, energy, dedication, and expertise make their publications possible but whose main contributions often occur behind the scenes.

A student journalist had to be nominated by his or her adviser, who must be a member of the MJEA. Each member of the All-State Journalism Team will receive a certificate and a special engraved pen.
