This partnership with Circle K is an easy way for everyone in the city to help us raise funds for our school.

This is such an easy way to help us boost opportunities for students at our school. We hope you'll help support Allen Elementary School in this way. Just make sure you visit the Circle K station at 901 E. Bradford St., and use the specially marked "Fueling our Schools" pump when you need gas!

News Blog Category - News Two Marion High School students have been named National Merit Scholarship finalists, a prestigious designation earned only by about 1 percent of the 1.5 million students who apply each year.



The MCS School Board honored Anne Marie Conrad and Micah Hoeksema as NMSC semifinalists in September 2016.


Juniors across the U.S. apply for the National Merit Scholarship program by taking the PSAT as juniors. Anne Marie Conrad and Micah Hoeksema, seniors at MHS who have earned the finalist designation (earned by only 15,000 students nationwide), are now in line for potential college scholarships sponsored by corporations and colleges across the country.

Anne Marie plans to study Spanish and international relations. She is still weighing her college options. Micah plans to attend Taylor University in Upland, where he will major in biology / pre-med and Spanish.

We congratulate Anne Marie and Micah and wish them continued success as they move into the next phase of their lives!

They are the fifth and sixth NMSC finalists at Marion High School in the last four years. They follow in the footsteps of Class of 2015 NMSC finalists Alyssa Ngo and Noah Todd, along with Class of 2014 NMSC semifinalist Vinnai Oddiraju.
