    The first “M” of M&Ms always stands for Mentors. The student mentors are A students holding a 3.5 or better. They are involved in Academic Team, Athetic teams, Band, Choir, Yearbook, FFA, NHS, BETA and every other club imaginable. One mentor runs a radio show on the weekends, another showed Golden Retrievers and was one of the best Juniors in the Country! They are all outgoing and personable and all make time in their busy schedules to give back to their community through mentoring.
