FWHS Friends Club Graduating Seniors
Members of the FWHS Friends Club have volunteered on weekends working with the Friends of the Pima County Public Library, a local non-profit organization. On April 28, Libby Stone, the executive director of FPCPL, honored our graduating seniors at our club’s final book sale this year. The seniors received small gifts of appreciation for their dedication and hard work over the years. Graduating seniors in this picture are Laura McGeary, Jacob Contreras, Laura Ruiz, and Luong Vo. A fifth graduating senior, Dylan Hughes, is not in the picture, but he joined our group later in the day. Gungzhe Sun, who goes by Lawrence, is also in the picture, and he too received recognition. Despite the challenges of transitioning to his first year at the U of A, Lawrence continues to regularly volunteer with the non-profit organization. Year after year, through thick and thin, these young men and women have faithfully supported our club and the non-profit organization that provides thousands of books to the FWHS English Department. In fact, Laura McGeary continues to be an active member from the first day of her freshmen year! This group is incredible!
Super Saturday was a huge success. Over two-hundred students benefited from the opportunity to earn full credit and make up missing work or rework assignments. Students were thankful to their teachers for allowing them the opportunity to work on assignments. Thank you for your participation!
