Highlighting Mid-Prairie's Finest
MP Alumni & Friend's Association continues MP Foundation's achievement recognition
The Mid-Prairie Foundation has previously awarded several alumni, staff or benefactors for their roles and contributions to our school. Several recipients per year were honored and publicly recognized for their contributions, service and/or leadership. Their pictures were displayed at the high school for one year and their names are listed on a permanent plaque. To continue honoring alumni that have served and represented Mid-Prairie well, the Mid-Prairie Alumni & Friends Association will now organize the Alumni Achievement Awards & Recognition process.
The Alumni Board and class representatives have expanded the categories for recognition to feature more deserving alumni for these honors. Please consider nominating alumni for their achievements. For nominations, fill out the form on p. 27 and return to Mid-Prairie Central Office, PO Box 150 Wellman; or fill out the form online - www.mphawksalumni.org; or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The nominations will be reviewed by a committee of board members, class reps and teachers. The deadline to submit a nomination is February 1. The first six recipients will be selected in March and recognized in the spring alumni newsletter and at either the Kalona Days parade or the Wellman 4th of July parade in the summer. Once nominated, the individual will stay on the list for consideration each year.
