Congratulations to the Scales’ Boys Basketball Team for placing 1st in the MCS Tournament and to Black Fox Boys Team for being runner up.  Also, congratulations to Reeves-Rogers’ Girls Basketball Team for placing 1st and to Bradley’s girls for being the runner-up team.  The 2018 Basketball Season was very successful.  Many thanks to Ralph Ringstaff for organizing the league, and to the principals and Murfreesboro Police Department for their support.

Congratulations to the MCS Competition Cheer teams.  Both the MCS Junior Team and the MCS Youth Team have qualified for National Competition at Disney later this year.  We appreciate the commitment of the students, their parents, and their coaches, Amber Kelly, Megan Brewer, Taylor Sams, and Jessica Jacobs.

MCS is blessed to have tremendous bus drivers and assistants.  Every day, they ensure our children travel safely to and from school.  But tonight, a special shout out goes to last year’s Bus Driver of the Year, Teresa Crouch, for the way she demonstrates her heart for children.  Recently, Teresa was acknowledged in a Daily News Journal Letter to the Editor for going an extra mile for a child.
