During the presentation, McConnell talked about the impact the school is having on its students as well the area.

The executive director said the school continues to see a large number of students graduate and go off to college and he’s excited about the direction the school is heading.

“This is a life changing experiment,” said Dr. McConnell. “Not only are we providing them with challenging and rigorous course work, but the things that happen outside of the classroom makes such a big difference. The residential environment, them being around other students who are like them, like-minded and learning from each other, I think really adds the greatest value and that’s something that can’t be duplicated.”

MSMS is continuing to recruit and bring in new students.
