MHS Theatre Students to Represent MCS at State Thespian Conference
Congratulations to MHS theatre students for being selected to represent Marietta City Schools at the State Thespian Convention in February.
The Georgia Thespians hosted auditions and interviews for All-State Theatre in September at Houston County High School in Warner Robins, GA. Each high school can submit 4 students for All- State auditions, and 3 of our 4 students were selected.
This is the first time EVER that MHS has had students selected for All-State Theatre.
Katie Lloyd and Carson Shearer were selected as All-State performers after a rigorous audition process that included dancing and singing, and Katie was chosen as a featured soloist.
Vesey Banuel was one of only 8 students in the state selected as All-State Tech Crew through an interview process and portfolio submission. He will help create costumes and sets for the performance at Thespian Conference in February.
Congratulations to these talented students!

Marietta Middle Students Named REACH Scholars

Marietta Middle Students Named REACH Scholars
On October 22, 2019 Marietta Middle School Students Angeles Mendez, Lariyah Ivory, and Santiago Roque Rios joined a select group of distinguished 8th graders when they were named REACH Georgia Scholars by Governor Brian Kemp.
The Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen (REACH) Georgia program pairs each student with an academic coach and mentor throughout their high school career. Upon graduation and successful completion of the program, each student will receive a college scholarship worth up to $10,000. This award can be matched by Georgia HOPE-eligible post-secondary institutions for a total of $20,000 per student. This year’s awards to MMS students was made possible by contributions from the Marietta Schools Foundation, Zaxby’s (John Silvey), and Roy and Kim Sheram.
The Marietta Mentoring for Leadership program facilitates the program and matches each student with a community member to mentor them through high school as part of the REACH Georgia program. Parents and guardians, in support of their children’s education, also sign the contract.
Please join us in wishing these amazing 8th graders the best as they tackle the next four years of high school and beyond!
