News Blog Category - News Marion Community Schools is proud to announce that four Marion High School juniors have been selected as Rising Stars of Indiana:
  • Hunter Durbin
  • Kathryn Erickson
  • Leilanu Jackson
  • Zoe Orrell
The Indiana Association of School Principals honors high school juniors across the state for their academic achievement, aiming to put a spotlight on them and boost their scholarship opportunities going into their senior year.

The Rising Stars program is a complement to the Indiana Academic All-Stars, which recognizes seniors who excel in the classroom, and who are also leaders in their schools and communities. Class of 2018 honorees will be announced in March.

MCS congratulates our Rising Stars and we, along with IASP, offer support and encouragement as they continue to grow and achieve. We look forward to seeing their continued accomplishments and leadership in our schools and community.

Come out to the MHS spirit shop on Dec. 13 or 14 between 3 and 7 p.m. and pick out the perfect gift! The Marion High School Alumni Association will be staffing the shop during these times.

Proceeds help fund the many ways MHSAA helps to support Marion High School and Marion Community Schools. (They've given tens of thousands of dollars directly to school and extracurricular programs over the past few years, and they've raised more than $200,000 for the Giant Dreams Endowments at the Community Foundation of Grant County to help provide for the needs of Giants today and long into the future!)

If you can't come to the shop, you can place orders for some of the gear online: www.mhsalum.com/giants-spirit-shop. (NOTE: Delivery may not be guaranteed before Christmas. Please contact the individual printers for more information.)
