Short Videos From A Great Week Of Viking Activities
It is truly a great time to be a Viking. Students, staff, parents, and the community continue to support the great things going on in all programs at FHHS. If you missed out on some of the great activities that went on this week you can view a few short videos below!
FHHS Spotlight Artist - Shannon Ford
Favorite Media: Graphic Design
Sustained Theme: "My theme is focused on what society deems to be ugly. I chose this because I wanted people who feel insecure about their differences and people who are shamed by the media to know that they aren't alone. Society has told us since we were little that abortion, obesity, anorexia, and anything that might make you unworthy to someone is wrong. However, in my eyes everyone is beautiful and everyone is ugly."
Works: You can view several pieces of work by Shannon Ford below.
