Hometown Heroes

Though MCHS annually honors local vets on Veterans Day, few know that several teachers have served as well.

Veterans come from every walk of life and after their service, they have hundreds of paths they can follow. Some of them become teachers. 

All of them served, but none of their experiences were the same. Every veteran feels differently about their military experiences. Some are very open about their past while others are more quiet about it. At MCHS, there are several teachers who have served in the military.
