A lot of consideration went into selecting this year's Trojan Hero, but one candidate set himself apart from the rest. We are proud to announce that this year's Trojan hero is Mr. Matt Meyer. Mr. Meyer goes above and beyond his required duties at MHS by working sporting events including volleyball games, basketball games, football games, and track meets. Furthermore, he frequently volunteers to assist with various Fine Arts events. Our Trojan Hero can also be found lending a helping hand to the custodial staff, and this summer he even mowed the school grounds when the custodial crew was short-staffed. In addition to the hours Mr. Meyer puts in as the FFA sponsor, he donates his time and talents manning the grill for the annual senior cookout. Congratulation Mr. Meyer, and thank you for all that you do!
