Francis Howell North High School Journalism student Anthony Kristensen has been named a 2016 Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award Winner.
Kristensen will be presented his national award May 25 in Washington D.C. at a ceremony at the Newseum with Ethyl Kennedy. Kristensen will be presented his award in the High School Print category. It's for a story he wrote in March of 2015 entitled "What One Family Can Never Forget." The piece tells the Koso family’s story as they searched for refuge all throughout a war-torn Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1990s. They share how they fled their homes in hope of finding safety wherever they could, which took them from their homes in the small town of Rogatica to the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo to their current residence in St. Louis.
Kristensen is the fourth recipient of this national honor from Francis Howell North High School. Preceding him as recipients are David Shewmaker (2008), Ryan Firle (2009), Alexis Christo (2013).
Other honorees in the three student and nine professional categories range from the Los Angeles Times to NPR News. You can see the full press release here: http://rfkhumanrights.org/news/news/36th-annual-robert-f-kennedy-book-award-goes-david-maraniss-once-great-city-detroit-story/

GAC Hall of Fame
Last year, the Gateway Athletic Conference initiated a Hall of Fame to recognize players/coaches/school personnel that have impacted high school sports in our area. The GAC was created in 1971 with 5 charter member schools (Francis Howell, Ft. Zumwalt, Duchesne, Wentzville & Orchard Farm). Currently there are 17 schools divided into 3 divisions. The first HOF class included 20 inductees. This year, 15 inductees will be added. I am proud to announce that Vince Nowak (FHN’s former Head Soccer Coach), and Jeremy Iwaszkowiec (FHN Class of 1995, Soccer Player) will be inducted into the 2016 GAC Hall of Fame. Vince and Jeremy are members of the inaugural class in the FHN Athletic Hall of Fame. You can read each of their Bio’s at http://fhnknights.org/main/alumnitr
The GAC HOF induction will be on May 25th at the annual GAC BBQ at Old Town St. Peters Park.
