FHS Grads Lead Madison Heights on City Council

Ferndale graduates fly high, and sometimes those lofty perches are close to home. Madison Heights appointed new city council members this week, including two FHS graduates: Class of 89 graduate Sean Fleming and Class of 99 graduate Quinn Wright. Mr. Wright also holds the prestigious distinction of being the first African American to hold a council position in the city of Madison Heights.

“People are the priority,” Wright said. “We have a duty to care diligently for our seniors, many of whom are aging in place and may need help within their homes." Funding city services and developing recreation are among Wright's priorities, and he has promised to "remain open to learning and engage in the process of sometimes unlearning ideas about one another, so that the people in our city feel increasingly recognized, their needs acknowledged, and their cultures honored — planting a deep-seated feeling of home for every citizen in this city.” Both candidates emphasized activities for senior citizens, while supporting local businesses and overseeing city services and budgets.

Councilperson Sean Fleming has a student at FHS, and he says Ferndale Schools continue to influence his community leadership. "As a council member I take my experience of Ferndale Schools, the sense of community, and pride and share the same values here at the city of Madison Heights in everything I do.  Ferndale is always part of my heart."

BIAB Thanks Supporters

Thank you to all who participated, sold and/or purchased for the Little Caesars Pizza Kit fundraiser for our district's Blessings in a Backpack. Together, we raised $1,140 which feeds 11 students for the entire school year and then some!

There was a raffle drawing for any seller that sold at least ten kits and the winner is...drumroll...Ms. Autumn Hall and her daughter Dallas! Together, they sold 25 kits and won the $50 prize. Congratulations to them and thank you to all!
