Lastly, over the weekend, we had a number of student-athletes help at Weekend of Champions at Grace Church. Pioneers in the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades took part in a number of sports activities. During the event, there were a number of MHS athletes that were helping lead different parts. It was a great to see these young adults give up a Friday night to help serve the younger students in our community.
Go Pioneers! #BeEpic!
