Essence Green with the Board of Education


The Board of Education welcomed FHN senior Essence Green as the student representative for the December Board Meeting. The District was honored to shine the spotlight on this well-loved and well-traveled student.

Growing up in a military family, Green has lived all over the country (and in others) while her dad serves in the army. Before moving to St. Charles County five years ago, she and her four siblings spent time in Georgia, Texas, Illinois, Hawaii, and Germany.

Now attending FHN, Green is one of the most involved and influential students at the high school. She carries a 4.1 weighted GPA and is a member of Knightsound, Bella-Voce, Knights of the Round Table, and Delta. She is also involved in Color Guard, Students for FHN, Student Cabinet, National Honor Society, and Mu Alpha Theta.

She may have a long list of clubs and activities, but she also has an active voice on campus. If you attend FHN, you probably recognize that voice as she reads the daily announcements over the intercom. You may also see her walking the halls with new students. Green assists the counseling center by giving tours to new Knights who transfer to North during the school year.

“Essence consistently demonstrates the character traits FHN hopes to see in all of its students,” says Principal Nathan Hostetler. “She treats everyone she encounters with respect, she looks for opportunities to show kindness to others, and she works diligently and thoughtfully to make FHN a better place.”

Outside of school, Green enjoys binge-watching television shows or movies on Netflix, writing songs, and drawing. After graduation, she plans to take a few summer courses at St. Louis Community College and then transfer to Lindenwood University to study Education and Psychology.

Though she will be graduating at the end of the school year, Green is grateful for her time at FHN. “It has been a wonderful high school experience,” says Green. “The environment and community that we are building have changed dramatically in a positive way, and I’m proud to call myself a Knight.”

Because of Green’s strong involvement at school and her kind nature towards others, she is an inspiration and a role model at FHN and across the FHSD community.
