**NEW THIS YEAR** NIGHT BEFORE GLOW-BALL KICKOFF EVENT! (This event is complimentary with your team registration)
2019 FEDA/FMA Teacher of the Year Golf Outing
Twenty-five students from Fairfield High School along with more than 10,000 of America’s best and brightest high school students traveled to San Antonio on June 28th to attend The Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) National Leadership Conference June 29–July 2, 2019. Participants from across the United States and abroad attended this exciting conference to enhance their business skills, expand their networks, and participate in more than 70 business and business-related competitive events.
Our FHS students did an amazing job competing. We had 3 students in our group make finalists. We also had 3 that took 60-minute objective tests that were administered onsite at NLC. Lauren Kraemer and Drake Drish made finalist in their presentation on Publication Design and Madison Kraemer made finalist in her presentation on Broadcast Journalism. Laurel Hilger received national recognition at the FBLA Awards of Excellence Program on July 2. Laurel competed in Computer Applications and brought home Sixth place.
These comprehensive national competitive events give recognition to and reward excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas. For many students, the competitive events are the capstone activity of their academic careers. We are all so very proud of all of our conference attendees and their accomplishments!
We also want to thank our 4 chaperones – Diana Drish, Staci Kraemer, Ed Matthews and Joni Stever – for coming along with us and helping every step of the way. We couldn’t have done it without them!
These are the 25 students who went to FBLA Nationals:
Hannah Bergren Erica Bochmann Danielle Breen
David Burnett Danae Drish Drake Drish
Clare Else Claire Epperson Julia Fritz

Aja Dorothy was chosen to receive a Trojan PRIDE Award for 5th grade. She exemplifies Trojan PRIDE traits daily by coming to school prepared each and every day. She is very responsible with being on time with her work. She seems to be the quiet, shy type of student in the classroom, but she can show leadership skills when needed to be a good role model to others. She shares bright ideas with others and can always be depended on to help and do the right thing. She will be missed in the classroom next year, but she will excel in 6th grade and do well continuing to grow and be a great model to others. Congrats, Aja Dorothy!
Caroline Van Pelt has been chosen to receive the Trojan PRIDE award. Caroline's passion for school is evident in the dedication she puts into her work. She is brave enough to try things out of her comfort zone. She asks questions when she needs direction and then applies that direction to her work. She is a leader in the classroom and a model to her classmates by standing up for what she knows is right. Her positive attitude is infectious and always is a delight to have in the classroom. Congratulations, Caroline. Well deserved!
Spencer McCready has been selected to receive the Trojan PRIDE Award! Spencer is always trying to improve and learn new things. He is focused during class and always participates. He is a great example of leadership. When working in a group, Spencer keeps his group on task so they can accomplish their goals. Spencer also demonstrates integrity at all times. He uses every spare minute of the day to finish work or read quietly while waiting for the next instruction. He can be trusted to do what is right. Congratulations, Spencer!
Axl Starr has been selected to receive the Trojan PRIDE Award. He has been a quiet leader in class all year and just recently has started being more vocal in his leadership roles. I know that I can count on Axl to be respectful and use his integrity. Others can count on him to stand up and do the right thing, even when the choices are tough. Axl is responsible and puts forth his best effort in all he does. Congratulations, Axl! Way to go!
Isabel McCready is an exemplary student, as she has many qualities that allow her to earn this Trojan PRIDE Award. She is part of the student council and recently has been a part of the student leadership team that works with our school culture and climate. Isabel also demonstrates Trojan PRIDE in the areas of respectful behavior, integrity in words and actions, and dependability. I can always count on Isabel to help on many different tasks in the classroom, from helping a struggling student to leading a small reading group. I am very proud of her growth this year and I know that she will continue to demonstrate these qualities throughout her career at FMS. Congratulations, Isabel!
Josh Mineart is a student who does not shy away from a challenge. He takes difficult tasks and turns them into opportunities to improve his skills.

Mazie Zimmer can be described as a passionate learner; willing to put worth work and effort to ensure she does her very best. Not only is she passionate, but she can be described as a leader. She has grown in her leadership skills throughout the year. For example, she works well with others such as helping them if they are struggling and handles conflict in a positive way. The 7th grade team also values her emotional strength by coming to class with a smile and a kind greeting every day, even when she’s not having a great day herself. In all, Mazie is an example of Trojan PRIDE because she consistently demonstrates respect to those around her and can be counted on to show integrity in all that she does.
Kind. Responsible. Dependable. Reliable. Many students display these positive traits from time to time, but the field narrows considerably when we look for students who consistently display these qualities. Our nominee is one of those few. Always ready with a smile or a helping hand, this young lady has led the way for her classmates as a wonderful role model. Congratulations to Ana Carmenhato. We are proud of your accomplishments and steadfast adherence to the tenets of Trojan PRIDE. Best of luck in high school!
Ellie Stever is a great student who shows Trojan PRIDE in and out of the classroom. She is one that will do anything that is asked of her and will do so with a smile on her face. She is respectful to all staff and students and is willing to help them in any way that she can. Ellie is a positive leader who shows tremendous integrity wherever you see her. The 8th grade team can always count on her to do her work to her greatest potential and to come to class prepared in every way to learn. The team appreciates everything she has done and all she continues to do. Keep up the tremendous work, Ellie!
When it comes to Trojan PRIDE, this young man has set the bar high. In addition to completing and turning in his assignments, he often goes above and beyond expectations.

When it comes to integrity, this young man can be counted on to do what is right even when no one is watching. He stays on task and encourages those around him to do the same. His teachers can depend on him to give a great effort in class each and every day. This young man is a quiet leader and does all the small things right which makes him a great role model of Trojan PRIDE for his peers.
