News Blog Category - News Link The Chronicle-Tribune recently focused on the important role mentors can play in the lives of our students.

“Our community has a shortage of mentors and there is a growing voice of young people who are looking for community encouragers to come along beside them in their educational and life paths,” Tammy Pearson, director of Project Leadership, which pairs community volunteers with local high school students for mentoring relationships, told the Chronicle-Tribune. “I just want to encourage as many people as possible who have always wanted to take the time to be involved in a mentoring program to make that one of their 2014 resolutions. There is a place for everyone. We just see the importance and the change that happens when someone agrees to spend some time in a young person’s life."


Marion Community Schools is incredibly grateful to have community support, including that of Project Leadership and Kids Hope. If you would like more information on how you can mentor an MCS student, visit the websites below:

Marion High School alumna Kristy Jones, who was one of the hosts of the recent Martin Luther King Jr. celebration and concert at Indiana Wesleyan University, spoke with the Chronicle-Tribune about one of her inspirations: MHS teacher Bobbie Owensby.

“When I found out she was being honored it was so awesome,” Jones told the C-T. “She has done so much. I use to say ‘I want to be a teacher like Mrs. Owensby.’ You knew that she had high expectations for us. ... She held us accountable."
