Congratulations to Forest Hills Central High School senior, Andrew Fox on being named one of 14 Class A Michigan High School Athletic Association Scholar Athletes. Andrew has excelled both on and off the tennis courts and baseball fields. In his essay he wrote, “Every sport has rules that each athlete must follow, but sportsmanship is a choice – a conscious decision an athlete makes to play the game with integrity, honor and respect. How athletes play the game, how they practice and how they treat their teammates and coaches defines their character.” To read more about this prestigious award, click here.
The FHPS food service department and culinary experts showcased some of the “tricks of the trade” for preparing healthy and flavorful meals.

If you have a group of students who’d like to learn culinary skills, tour a large kitchen or have a cooking demonstration, call Chris Nelson, FHPS food service director, 493-8774.
