13 Giants will compete in YEP business plan competition

Posted on Jun. 17 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Thirteen MHS students have been accepted into the next class of competitors in the Young Entrepreneurs Program.

The Grant County Economic Growth Council announced the students accepted for the 2015 program on its website Tuesday. The MHS students who will be participating are:
  • Alexis Abbott
  • Payton Blair
  • Alexandra Durbin
  • Erin Fleece
  • Jada Flowers
  • Anna Hussong
  • Harley Kemp
  • Katie Murphy
  • Nigel Small
  • Madelin Spence
  • Garrett Summers
  • Courtney Tarrance
  • Stacia Tyson
As part of YEP, now in its fifth year in Grant County, these students, along with several students from Mississinewa High School, will compete for scholarships and prizes while enhancing their education in the areas of business, leadership, and team work.

The Grant County Economic Growth Council created the business plan competition, which gives area high school juniors and seniors the unique opportunity to explore business fundamentals and entrepreneurship in an interactive, hands-on way. The 10-week program is designed to help students think innovatively, creatively, and optimistically about the prospect of starting a business locally.

We are proud of our students accepted to participate this year, and we wish them good luck in the competition!

MCS registration begins this month

Posted on Jun. 08 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Registration for the 2015-16 school year at Marion Community Schools will begin later this month.

Online registration is set to open on June 29. Families with students who were enrolled at an MCS school last year can register their students online.  For more information, click here.

The online registration process can be completed at any Internet-connected computer (including the public stations available at Marion Public Library). However, computer/Internet access and staff assistance will also be available during our on-site registration days, set for 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 21 and 22 at Marion High School, 750 W. 26th St. (This will be the location for registration for all MCS schools, K-12. Staff from all school buildings will be available on those days at Marion High School.) Parking is available along 26th Street and Carey Street on the west side of the building. For more information, click here. 

Those with students who are new to MCS should plan to attend our on-site registration days to provide needed documentation and information, including proof of residence (such as a recent utility bill with your name and address), and the name and contact information for the school your student most recently attended, along with any health/allergy information.

Textbook fees and deposits can also be paid online as part of the registration process, or at the on-site registration days (where you can avoid the online payment processing fee).

A note for Tucker Career and Technology Center students: MHS students will register for TCTC classes during the regular registration process outlined above. However, TCTC has separate times set for county students who will attend in the fall: July 22 and 23, between 8 and 11 a.m. or 12:30 and 3:30 p.m. For more information, click here to visit the TCTC website.
