Students are ready and willing to give back

-A A +A

Marion County High School is going “community.”
What does this mean? It means that MCHS wants its students to give back to the community by serving alongside those volunteers who thanklessly do a deed that would not otherwise get done without the hearts of servants.
Starting this school year, all freshmen, sophomores and juniors are required to get 10 hours of community service from activities that are beyond family duty and are not an extracurricular club requirement. Also, a major change with our seniors this year is that they are going to work on a group community project to fulfill their obligation of service.
This is where the community of Marion County comes in. MCHS needs projects for our students. Please contact MCHS if your organization, business or special event needs free manpower. MCHS wants to give back to those who have given to us - our county, our state and our country. MCHS wants to teach our students the value of true community service.
If you have an idea for a senior group project or if you are requesting one, 10, even 100 volunteers for an event, feel free to let us know whatever you need.
Please contact Stacey Hall at MCHS, stacey.hall@marion.kyschools.us or Martha Ann Mattingly at Community Education, martha.mattingly@marion.kyschools.us to schedule your event. We will list the opportunities on our special “Service Board” and help match students to them so that all will have the chance to earn their required hours. It’s a win-win for everyone. MCHS looks forward to giving back to the community!
