As the Mineral Springs High School Mentoring Program enters its third year, the organization plans to improve by teaming up with Howard County Extension 4-H through use of the many positive activities 4-H has to offer. Last Thursday, after school, Program Assistant Jennifer Morrow facilitated a Team Building exercise with mentors and “mentees” in attendance. Upcoming sessions will consist of parliamentarian training, quilting and financial literacy. Adviser Sandra Rhone encourages all students enrolled in grades 7 through 12 to sign up. Transportation home after each meeting is provided by the school district. 

During the meeting, Vera Marks, representative for Hopewell CME presented a check for $200 in support of the Mentoring Program.
