March Students of the Month

Sabrina Warren

MMHS is proud to announce the March students of the month! 

In five years, sophomore Sabrina Warren sees herself at college as a returned LDS missionary. Her favorite subject is probably choir because she can sing with her friends in choir.

Her favorite quote is “Triumph is just a little try. Plus a little umph!” One thing that makes Sabrina different than everyone else is that she likes to give 110% in everything she does.
