Magnificent Marauder

I wanted to thank you all for nominating students for Magnificent Marauder. We had over 300 students recognized on Thursday night. We will send out a list of those students who won when we conduct this program in the Spring This way we can nominate some students who have not received the award. What a great way to tell kids they are making a difference.
