Hardin named MCPS Student Ambassador of the Week AK Hardin

Marion County High School senior Anna Kate Hardin has been named the MCPS Student Ambassador of the Week by ambassador advisors Laurie Followell and Troy Benningfield.

“Anna Kate keeps us moving in the right direction when it comes to student ambassadors,” Followell said. “She has an exceptional attention to detail that allows us to get everything done effectively.  When given a task, Anna Kate sees it through to the end.  Her personality makes her a true leader and keeps us entertained.  She knows how to motivate others, and we are truly a stronger group because of her guidance.”  

This is Hardin’s third year as a student ambassador and she is a member of the group’s executive council.

Seven MCHS students advance to next round of GSP application process GSP students

Seven Marion County High School juniors have been selected to advance to the next round of the Governor’s Scholars Program’s application process. They are: Katie Beth Brady, Zachary Brady, Seth Caldwell, Zachary Essex, Josie Followell, Delaney Mattingly, and Samuel Thompson.

 “We had a very strong pool of applicants this year,” MCPS Gifted and Talented teacher Laurie Followell said. Throughout the year, Followell worked with students on completing and revising their applications. “All of the students spent a great deal of time working on their applications. They would work at home, during their lunch periods, or if they had extra time in the NextGen lab. So, we had a lot of strong applications due to a lot of hard work.“
