“Find a need you can fill today, one that is within your power, and do it. As you contemplate the options before you — tomorrow, next year, and ten years from now — remember that there often is no right answer, so don’t be paralyzed trying to figure it out.”Commencement Speaker Christina Lowery, CEO of Girl Rising
“We have become bold young women ready to take on the world and be agents of change.” – Senior Class President Hayden Gillooly
“Despite coming from various backgrounds, MHS grants us the opportunity to connect and share unique stories with each other. Thank you for making this journey a complex, yet great one.” – School President Zuri Wilson
“When the going gets tough, they get real. When the going gets tougher, they have the grace to ask for help.” – Head of School Julia Heaton, about the Class of 2017
