The first time in MHS history that all DECA competitors earned advancement to the State Career Development Conference.  If students advance at the State Career Development Conference, they will earn a spot to compete in the International Career Development Conference (ICDC) in April that is held in Orlando, Florida.

Photojournalism

Photojournalism is a class where students learn the basics about photography and where they can experiment using state of the art DSLR cameras, lighting in an indoor studio setting and where they can explore their artistic side through photography. These young bright minds often find their inner creative side from this class. Most of them become long time lovers of the art of photography and some of their photos are used in our yearbooks and on the Newspaper website and newsletter.
