The May male student of the month is Matthew Crockett, the 17-year-old son of Lee Crockett and Nancy and Alan McKee. Matthew’s strengths are responsibility, consistency, communication, analytical, and competition.

Earlier this spring, Matthew was inducted into the FHS Chapter of the National Honor Society. He is also very active in the FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes).

In his free time, Matthew helps care for his grandmother.

Upon graduation in June, Matthew plans to participate in AAU track in hopes of being offered a track and field scholarship.
