FHSD Students Compete at the Missouri SkillsUSA Conference

Three Francis Howell School District (FHSD) high school students, representing Lewis & Clark Career Center at the SkillsUSA Missouri State Leadership and Skills Conference in Linn, Missouri from April 6-8, medaled in their respective competitions. Allison Mayfield from Francis Howell Central (FHC), a student in the Health Occupations program at Lewis & Clark, will move on to the national competition in Louisville, Kentucky in June after taking first place in the Basic Health Care competition. Gabe Freehill of Francis Howell North (FHN) earned a silver medal in the Construction Teamwork competition, and Kenysha Falls of FHN earned a bronze medal in the Medical Terminology competition.

Students competed in a variety of technical, hands-on, written, and oral competitions that related directly to their program of study at Lewis & Clark. A total of 14 medals were awarded to Lewis & Clark students.

“I’m so happy for Alli Mayfield to be able to represent Missouri at nationals,” said Dr. Andrew M. Stewart, director of the Lewis & Clark Career Center. “She is a highly dedicated student, and we are all very proud of what she has accomplished.”
