The MRH Link Crew offers leadership opportunities for MRH High students. The Link Crew serves our school in multiple roles: as student mentors, academic tutors, teacher aides, 9th grade leaders, and MRH HS ambassadors. To be a member of Link Crew, students must achieve certain GPA, attendance and discipline criteria. They not only receive the personal satisfaction knowing they are serving their peers and teachers, but they earn the right to Friday off campus lunches. Learn more.
