MEET THE ALUMNI
FCS's Alumni is extremely diverse and influential. FCS has involved alumni who have went to prestigious colleges, who are teachers, mayors, politicians, council members, performers, restaurant owners, serve for the US military, and much more. It is the leadership of our past alumni that has inspired this year's board to keep the program alive. After all, if FCS has made some contribution to help our alumni grow into the amazing people they are today, then a program like this deserves to stay alive and prosper for many years to come...
