Smiling Through Nervous Tension: Just Another Capstone Night at MRH
It's one of the biggest nights of the year for MRH 12th graders. Seniors in English IV presented their Capstone projects to evaluators from the community Thursday night.
Local businesses donated food and drink for the evaluators. The small groups of judges examined two or three students’ presentations.
The students’ projects (a subject to research and present) began in the fall. Each student chose a mentor (over 21 and not a family member) as a guide. Time management was a major part of the project; students had to fit it into their academic and job schedules. The Capstone presentations are famously marked by butterflies in the stomach for students who aren't accustomed to public speaking.
Quoting principal Dr. Kevin Grawer, "What an awesome event to witness our seniors step up and deliver on their Capstone work tonight. It is a powerful thing to witness our kids come through this process. I was floored by their seriousness, professionalism, and commitment to their product. One of the highlights of the year for sure!
Thank you, Mrs. [Kris] Roudebush, for all your hard work!"
It was the fourth year for the Capstone projects.
