Board of Directors started and is comprised of various community leaders to help promote and build a strong Education Foundation from the ground up.
Hall of Distinction was established and held Inaugural Ceremony to honor the Charter Class: Graduates — Ed Brady (1980), Dr. Mark Ciota (1982), Dan Darlington (1968), Dr. John Roth, Jr. (1958), Jimmy Stafford (1982), Major Elizabeth Talarico (1994) Honorary:  Jim & Carol Baum, Joseph Corsello, Shirley Kiss, Charles “Pete” Muffler.
We are pleased with the impact we have made on our students in such a short period of time. We feel it is equally as important to honor the accomplishments of our graduates and those that have helped shape our school and community into what it is today. We couldn’t do this without the help of our board, as well as our donors. To find out how you can get involved, or to make a donation, reach out to us at mchseducationfoundation@gmail.com.

The MCHS Education Foundation would like to thank the 2016 Senior Class for their generous donation of $2,000. This donation will help kick start the Hall of Distinction in early 2017.
