2 Howell Soccer Players Come To Aid of Student

Below is an email that was received today. The email below is just another example of the great student-participants we have representing our programs at FHHS. These two young men were not only integral parts of the State Championship Soccer Team but are also excellent role models and examples of how we want our student-participants displaying our RISE core values of Respect, Integrity, Sportsmanship, & Excellence at all times. Congratulations to Matt and Jake for coming to the aid of a fellow Viking today!

"I would like to commend Matt Hunt's and Jake Taylor's actions in my classroom this morning. Their quick thinking and action helped to prevent a serious injury when another student started to seize. They lowered her to the floor and rolled her to side to make sure she wouldn't get hurt. Matt and Jake also moved the desks away from her and stayed to protect her until the nurse arrived."
