Student Senate and Mendon High School would like to thank Blake Everson and Ethan Bingaman for the success of the second annual “Art and Music Night”. Blake and Ethan spent many hours in preparation to make this event and last year’s event, two great successes. Mr. Art Stephenson’s students had their drawings and paintings displayed in the lobby of the High School and then everyone was entertained by the many talented singers and musicians during the talent event. We want to thank all the performers and their accompanists and especially to Blake and Ethan for all their hard work. We will miss your leadership.
The Mendon National Honor Society held its first annual fundraiser this past month. The group collected just over $4000 in donations from family, friends, community members, and businesses. Each year the National Honor Society plans to donate half their proceeds to a local organization or charity. This year, the Mendon NHS chose Team Oliver. Oliver Ray, the son of two former Mendon High School graduates, Kyle and Lyndsie (Maxwell) Ray, is a two year old fighting Hyperinsulinemia. The Mendon National Honor Society proudly presented a $2,000 check to Team Oliver to help offset medical bills and expenses.
