Going Above and Beyond
MCHS student Vanessa Santillan is a direct example of how our high school students are reaching for the stars. Vanessa is in Mrs. R. Lee’s and Ms. L. Twitty’s Business Production class and is also taking college courses, so that by the time she graduates from high school she will have an Associate’s degree. Vanessa is always striving for the best in everything she does. In her business production class, she gets to utilize her creative skills by helping create and maintain the school scrapbook, as well as work on many of the projects received by the department. We in the Business/Technology department would like to give a great big “THANK YOU” to Vanessa for her tireless proof-reading of the “Eagle’s Nest Newsletter.” Vanessa, your diligence is greatly appreciated!
