Mr. and Miss FCHS is the most coveted title to be bestowed upon a graduating senior. When electing Mr. and Miss FCHS, the voting student body takes into account academics, leadership, character, athletics, and of course, school spirit.

Melanie is the daughter of Deborah Collins of Crawfordville and Scott Collins of Carrabelle. During Melanie’s high school career at Franklin County School, she has played Varsity Softball, and was selected to the First Team All Big Bend and First Team All State for two years. She also played for the Seahawk Golf team, and was selected to the First Team All Big Bend for three years. Melanie has committed to Chipola College on a softball scholarship.

Hunter and Melanie send the following message: Good Evening, Seahawks, we would like to start out by thanking the student body for electing us to represent our school as Mr. and Miss FCHS. Franklin County School has opened many doors for us, and we could not be more grateful to the staff for their commitment to, and influence on, each student. To the Class of 2019, we would like to thank our classmates for the countless memories that we will always cherish. We are so happy to be able to share this senior year with you, and can’t wait to see where this next chapter in our lives takes us. Let’s make this year one to remember! To the underclassmen, high school is a time for personal growth and learning, so don’t let fear stop you from trying something new. Make sure you appreciate this time with your classmates. It goes by faster than you think. Lastly, we would like to thank Ms. Edwards and Mrs. Teresa for their constant commitment to our class, and for helping us get through these last four years. And remember, we’re the best you’ve ever seen, we’re the class of 2019!
