Students of the Year
Congratulations to Fraser High School's Students of the Year!
Abigail Spear - Art Student of the Year
Abby has been at FHS for all four years and has worked her way through the Art Department in every class. She is planning on taking her skills and talents to the College For Creative Studies next year as she pursuits a career in Art Design and Photography.
Abby is a dedicated artist always trying to push herself to new things with different mediums and styles. She is willing to not only push herself but by example those around her.
This year Abby's goal was to complete artwork for the Scholastics Art Competition as well as college entry. She submitted 6 pieces in photography and mixed media. We are still waiting to hear the results of Scholastics but in January Abby heard that she had been accepted to CCS and awarded a scholarship that starts at $70,000.
Mackenzie Bisdorf -English Student of the Year
Mackenzie has attended Fraser since elementary school. Her first year in Fraser was her sixth-grade year. She has been in Quill & Scroll throughout her junior and senior years. She was a Link Crew Leader during her junior year. She has been in the 4As club during her junior and senior year. She also participated in swim her sophomore and junior year and played tennis junior year.
Mackenzie’s high academic ability to read critically and reflect on her learning through writing and discussion has added to her opportunities for growth in her English classes as well as other content areas at Fraser High School. Her skills in writing are beyond her years, and she connects what she learns to larger contexts that will help her outside of high school.
Mackenzie is an amazing student. As a sophomore, she stood out in her Journalism 1 class and took the initiative to add Journalism 2 for the second semester and not wait for the next year. She contributed outstanding work for the school paper and was awarded by Michigan Interscholastic Press Association, out of Michigan State University, for her work. In her Junior year, she shifted her focus to yearbook and was the assistant editor. She was the driving force behind the success of the book in the very challenging 2020 year. She has taken on the role of Editor-in-Chief for yet another extremely challenging year to make a yearbook. She is leading and working extraordinarily hard to make sure the 2021 book is as special as this year. Mackenzie has also taken on the role of President of the Quill & Scroll Journalism Honor Society. With remote learning for the majority of the year so far, it is a challenge to get a club to function. She is leading and encouraging her fellow student journalists to get involved and excel even during difficult days.
Lindsey Grammatico-Social Studies Student of the Year
Lindsey shows great pride in her work. Her contribution lies in the example she sets for others as a student, teammate, and friend. During the past four years, Lindsey has been a member of Peer to Peer and the Varsity Tennis team. She is a recent nominee for the Daughters of the American Revolution award and is studying to be an Ultrasound Technician and Macomb Community College.

She currently maintains a 4.045 GPA which ranks her in the top 10 of her class. Her work in class is impeccable. She thinks through her parts/designs so as to best develop/create them. She thinks in a very logical manner and can articulately describe what she is doing and why.
Engineering is one of the most male-dominated professions with women comprising about 14% of the workforce. Cassidy has the ability to break down barriers. She seems to thrive in this environment.
