Homecoming/Reunions – Help drum up support/attendance for Reunion 2013! Milestone years end in 3’s and 8’s.
Athletic Walk of Fame Induction – Need one or two volunteers to be on AWOF committee which selects community-nominated athletes for induction. Would like to cover each decade and currently need 70’s, 80’s and 00’s grads.
Send care packages to new freshmen alums – help our new graduates feel a little MPA love by receiving something special from home. Notes from current third-grade students will be included and hopefully create a life-long pen-pal friendship!
