Fleetwood seniors Addison Hostetler and Emily Walbert were named February students of the month at FAHS. This award is a large accomplishment and shows the work ethic of both students. 

Addison Hostetler, daughter of Brian and Christie Hostetler, is involved in student council, science olympiad, Model UN, chorus, volleyball, bowling, track, National Honor Society, Rho Kappa Historical Honor Society, and the Women’s Empowerment Club (for which she acts as president). She is also vice president of the class of 2023, flute section leader in the marching band, and secretary of Interact Club. 

Addison plays a huge role in the activities that take place at Fleetwood. She is the creator of the Women’s Empowerment Club with the goal of pushing for gender equity at the school. In addition, she has also contributed to homecoming events and helped plan the senior sunrise and prom. 

Addison’s future plans include attending college to study engineering. 

Emily Walbert, daughter of Russell and Alicia Walbert, takes part in orchestra, pit orchestra, chorus, choraliers, women’s chorus, band, marching band, Cadillacs, Envirothon, FBLA, Relay for Life, Interact Club, National Honor Society, and Rho Kappa Historical Honor Society.

Outside of school, Emily stays busy while being at her church, working at her family business, singing several solos at events, and taking time to participate in Relay for Life events and other volunteer activities at Opportunity House. 

Emily’s late aunt continues to influence her each day and has shaped her into the person and student she is today. Her aunt, unfortunately, passed away from pancreatic cancer at age 46. 

“My aunt was the most wonderful person I have ever met. She never lost her bright smile, and she always wanted to make everyone around her happy. She changed my outlook on life in so many ways and has made me appreciate every second with those I love,” Walbert said. 

Emily’s future plans are to attend West Chester to obtain her bachelor’s degree and then attend mortuary school to obtain her funeral director’s license. 

While both seniors are well-deserving students, neither expected to receive the award. 

“Honestly, I was a little scared because I was called to the office to talk to Mr. Herman without prior warning, but once I learned it was for student-of-the-month, I was very happy and surprised,” Hostetler said.
