Alumni-Senior Fellowship Dinner: Celebrating our seniors
Mark your calendar now for March 10, 2017


The Alumni-Senior Fellowship Dinner is a great opportunity for alumni to show support for their future alumni brothers and sisters. During the dinner, seniors meet alumni in a casual atmosphere and talk about life after MHS and possibly establish a mentoring relationship. To facilitate the best experience for the seniors, we request the following of alumni hosts:

Register early
Registrations will NOT be accepted after the Feb. 27 deadline—NO exceptions. We are happy to share that each year more alumni step up to sponsor seniors. We truly appreciate this enthusiasm and ask that out of respect for our seniors, fellow alumni and our School you follow the registration timeline. Late registrations impede our ability to match alumni and seniors in a meaningful way in order to provide a memorable experience for everyone.

No alcohol permitted
We ask that you refrain from any type of alcohol prior to the event, and no alcohol is permitted at the tables during the dinner. The dinner ends at approximately 9 p.m., leaving ample time after seniors have returned to their TL homes for alumni to socialize with each other.

The Alumni-Senior Fellowship Dinner is about our seniors
The best way to facilitate conversation at your table is to engage seniors. Find out about MHS today, what the seniors enjoy, their fears as they approach graduation and, if time and interest permits, not just what they are planning after MHS, but why? The “what” may be easy to articulate, but the “why” is a more purposeful conversation, requiring thought and reflection by students.

To register
Fellowship Weekend brochures will be mailed in early January. Register for the Alumni-Senior Fellowship Dinner by mail using the form in the brochure or register online at Watch breaking news for the announcement of when online registration is live.
