FCHS STLP State Competition Results

A message from FCHS STLP Advisor, Tim Baker,
"The FCHS STLP represented Franklin County High School well yesterday at the STLP State Championships. We didn't walk away with as much hardware as we would have liked, but the students had a great time and I got to see many of them step up and take on a leadership role as they presented their project to countless teachers, students, and STLP coordinators.

Cheyenne Graves and Mikeal Wiley presented at Level 2 project showcase. Although they didn't advance to Level 3, they still put together a solid project in the cafeteria television. This is still a very impactful project for our school and something that will have long term effects in the future. They were also pulled up onto the big stage on the Rupp Arena floor and was interviewed about their project.

Andrew Keffer participated in Microsoft gaming, but did not place. He battled hard in an intense game of Minecraft, but his team was unable to come out on top.

Mikeal and Joey Wiley repeated as State Champions in the high school level sumobot competition. It was complete and total domination all the way through. You have to win two bouts to win a round. They won all 4 rounds on the way to the title and lost only 1 bout. And that was only because their bot backed off the board on its own. Special thanks to Ms. Graves on being our volunteer judge for the competition. This allowed me to work more directly with the kids and was a great asset. Thanks to everyone for your support. Please congratulate these students on a job well done when you see them."

Flyer Symphonic Band Rated Distinguished

A message from Flyer Band Director, Josh Toppass,
"Wednesday night (March 25th), the Symphonic Band students participated in our regional assessment. This is a rigorous evaluation consists of three highly qualified judges grading a prepared performance as well as one judge testing my ability to teach a brand new piece to the band in the span of 7 minutes (we call this sight reading). I am happy to report that all four judges rated our band DISTINGUISHED (the highest rating).

I am super proud of these students. I gave them some of the most difficult music they had ever played and they rose to the challenge.

Just another reason I am PROUD to be a Flyer!"
