Remembering Mrs. Johnston


On December 5th, FHS honored the memory of Mrs. Johnston with a ceremony coinciding with the Boys Basketball Game against Edison. Students worked hard to support the evening by:

  • selling bracelets and t-shirts
  • gift baskets were collected and raffled off
  • a bake sale was held

The proceeds all went into the Traci Johnston Scholarship Fund at Edison High School. Over $1,200 was raised, with a scholarship for a Firelands student created by Edison High School through the fund.

The Firelands Select Choir sang the National Anthem, the Firelands Pep Band was on site, and The Edison Chargers and The Firelands Falcons basketball teams, students, and staff all wore commemorative shirts during the game.

A big thank you to Mrs. Debbie Van Cooney and Mr. Tom Moyer for coordinating the event, which also brought the creation of a teaching award, The Traci Johnston Lighthouse Award for Exemplary Teaching.

Please see this short video from the basketball game, which includes a presentation from Mrs. Van Cooney to Mr. Johnston.
