November Students of the Month


Maple Mountain High School is proud to announce the November students of the month!

Sophomore Katelyn Mitchell’s favorite quote is, “If a task is once begun, never leave it till it’s done. Be the labor great or small, do it well or not at all.” In five years, she sees herself returned from an LDS mission and then at college.
