FHS Advanced Manufacturing Technology Program Students Earn Certified Production Technician Certifications
Nov 14 2017
Picture on Left - Freeport High School’s Gabriel Garrett excelled in his Automation and Production Tech class to obtain his Certified Production Technician Certification, or CPT, in record time. He was the first freshman to complete the CPT. This achievement is even more significant due to the fact that Gabriel has a visual impairment and utilized adaptive technology during all aspects of the curriculum. After graduation in 2020 Gabriel wants to pursue a degree in some field of engineering. Pictured with instructor, Ted Missildine.
Picture on Top Right - Scott Howard, a senior in the manufacturing and pre-engineering academy at Freeport High School, has earned his Certified Production Technician certificate. Scott says " I want to pursue a career in the automotive field. The CPT skills I have learned will continue to help me in problem solving and maintenance as I move into my future career." Pictured with instructor, Ted Missildine.
Picture on Bottom Right - Megan Altman (left) and Emily Phillips, both sophomores at Freeport High School, have completed their Manufacturing Skill Standards Council Certified Production Technician certification. Megan was the first female to finish the CPT, followed closely by her friend and classmate Emily, at FHS. Both Megan and Emily hope to continue their future education in manufacturing and engineering.

Maude Saunders second graders were transformed into field scientists today as they headed down the school’s nature trail. Once they reached the outdoor classroom, they learned how to use their senses to discover the wonders of nature. Thank you to the Emerald Coast Science Center for providing this opportunity for our students. Submitted by Krisy Spence.

The Freeport schools combined efforts to honor local veterans and active service members on Thursday, November 9th in the FMS gym. Over 900 people including students, teachers, and community members were on hand to witness what could only be described as true patriotism exhibited by all who were in attendance. It took several months of planning and preparation to make this event happen and the efforts did not go unnoticed. Please see the program to view the list of people/groups who helped make this special event happen. A special thank you goes out to our guest speakers Lt. Devin Rushing and Staff Sgt. Monica Garcia.
