Success isn’t only measured by how many touchdowns you made, how many points you scored or how many takedowns you have, but in your ability to leave MHS with the confidence and knowledge that you will be a productive member in society. My hope and prayer is that you will leave MHS better than you began. I’m excited to be your Director of Student Activities and I wish all student-athletes and the entire student body the best in all future endeavors.
