Madison County High School has spent the last nine months preparing their students for the next chapter of their lives. While the graduating class of 2011 has learned all that the school has to offer, the classes of 2012, 2013 and 2014 have a little while left. MCHS is the final steppingstone for many of Madison’s teenagers as they transition from childhood into adulthood.
MCHS has spent this year attempting to keep their students on the right path and leading them in a positive direction towards the future. There have been several sports teams represent MCHS proudly this year, whether its football, basketball, soccer, volleyball, baseball or softball.
There was a Talent Show at MCHS on May 20, where students got to show off their wide array of skills. There have been field days and field trips that allowed students to forget testing for a while and focus on fun. There have been several club meetings and banquets throughout the year. The upperclassmen got to participate in the prom, which was themed “P.S. I Love You.” They also recently has a field day to honor the class who had the least absences and referrals; the sophomore class won the field day.
The MCHS Varsity Cowboys had their annual Maroon and Silver game on May 19 and will have their kick off Spring Game on May 27.
The staff at MCHS has also stayed busy trying to help as many of the seniors as possible to be able to walk across that stage on June 3. They have been teaching students day in and day out, how to succeed not only in the classroom but also in life.
Evelyn Chancy, who has been a longtime staff member at MCHS and is currently the schools secretary stated, “All in all it has been a good year.”
The class of 2011 will be graduating on June 3 at 8 p.m. at Boothill Stadium. The entire community is invited to join in this celebration.
