     Mississippi Scholars Tech Master Award at Graduation

    Want to be recognized for your academic work as well as your career preparation?  Mississippi Scholars program currently recognizes those who pursue a college-bound course of study, with a particular emphasis on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).  We would love for 100% of our students to be able to claim this award when they graduate.  For more information click here -https://msmec.com/public-education-forum/curriculum/ 

    One of the requirements is documenting community service hours from 9-12 grades.  Graduates of the classes of 2020 and 2021 only have to document 40 hours.  Class of 2022 and beyone need to document 80 hours.  Download and get signatures throughout each year as you complete your activities.  Give it to your engineering teacher to file away until your a senior so all of your service hours will be documented and submitted in your senior year prior to graduation.  Here's the form - MS Scholars Tech Master Service Documentation Form
