The Francis Scott Key High School Advisory Council and Academic Boosters are selling tickets for the Gem Cupcakes fundraiser to benefit the Advisory Council programs currently in place.

Michelle Brilhart, video/technology education and art teacher at FSK said, “The FSK Advisory Council and Academic Boosters support the success of FSK students by building relationships with the surrounding community, showcasing all of our students, and harnessing the resources of the community.”
Advisory Council programs include Wall of Excellence, a Hall of Fame recognition for graduates of FSK, a Veterans Day Assembly and Recognition Day, as well as scholarship funding for students taking the AP tests.
