MCPS announces invitees for annual Young Leaders Conference; Miss Kentucky to deliver keynote address YLC

Sixty-one Marion County Public Schools students in grades 4-8 have been invited to attend the annual Young Leaders Conference at Marion County High School, Saturday, March 7, which is hosted by the MCPS Student Ambassadors. 

The event is organized and run by the Student Ambassador Executive Council which is comprised of MCHS seniors Jamison Epps, Anna Kate Hardin, Dailyn Spalding, and Mason Sullivan.

“My favorite part is just the interactions we get to have from kids from all over the district,” Sullivan said. He is the Young Leaders Conference chair on this year’s executive council. “You can tell that sometimes they do need a little bit of instruction on how to be a better leader and we get the opportunity to show them how to do that, and that’s one of my favorite things to do.”

MCHS art class completes hallway mural to promote positivity Mural

There’s a new mural at MCHS with an uplifting theme.  Principal Robbie Peterson approached art teacher Kandace Potter about creating a mural in the school with a “smile” theme.  The SMILE Club was established this year at Marion County High School and he thought it would be a fitting project for the high school artists to tie in with the club.  The SMILE club focuses on promoting positivity in the school. They also raise awareness about mental health and the resources that are available to help anyone struggling with mental health issues.  Potter’s Advanced Art 2 class took on the challenge and were able to experience first hand how visual art connects, communicates, and creates community.
