Bree Soule, Online Editor-in-Chief

As the FHS Class of 2022 prepares to join the Fenton alumni, they are leaving behind a legacy at the school. The Fenton High staff has gotten to know the senior class over the past four years, and have shared memorable moments and what they will miss about the senior class listed below.

“Members of the Class of 2022 are generous in donating their effort, time ad energy to others in our school and community.  Since ninth grade, they have helped meet others’ needs and have made Fenton and FHS a better place for all of us— they have led the way in collecting food, reading to elementary students, organizing blood drives, and just being there when needed.  They truly know the importance of service to others.” – Post-Secondary Program Coordinator and IB Diploma Program Coordinator Mark Suchowski 

“[I will miss] their loyalty to each other and what they brought to the theatre department this year.” – drama teacher Lori Thompson

“I will miss the seniors’ curiosity, persistence, and their desire to make the world around them a better place for everyone. COVID totally hosed most of their high school experience, but seeing them now round the corner to the finish line with empathy, grace, determination, and humor, has been a great reminder that we are more alike than we are different.” – English teacher Megan Ake 

“Looking back when I had these students in eighth-grade choir and seeing who they have become,  to see the growth and maturity is awesome. I’ve been very blessed to have the senior leaders I have.  They have made a huge, positive difference in the choir program.” – Choir Director Brad Wright

“During band camp, the seniors all shared their goals for the future and I loved how everyone was supporting each other and following their passions. No matter where they go, they will always be a Fenton Tiger.” – science teacher Nicholas Jeffery
