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

Sophomore Abbigail Buckley’s favorite quote is, “You can always be a better person today then you were yesterday.” In five years, she sees herself going to college to become a pediatric nurse and starting a family.

Abbigail’s free time is taken with the school’s volleyball team and also a club team. Her favorite subject in school is child development because that is what she wants to go into for an occupation. One thing that sets Abbigail apart is that she is mature for her age. Most adults that know her call her an “old soul.”

If Abbigail could meet anyone in history, she would like to talk to Abraham Lincoln because she wants to know what he though when so much stated changing.

Sophomore Kannon Sherrod’s favorite quote is, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” It makes him want to work hard to help change the world into a better place. In five years, Kannon sees himself going to college at BYU or Utah.

Kannon’s hobbies are exploring, soccer, paintball, running, building things, reading, and programming. His favorite subject in school is science because he wants to be an engineer or inventor, and he likes learning about how things work.

One funny experience for Kannon was when he and his friends were playing a game called infection. He was hiding behind a door when they came into the room Kannon was in, and they locked the door thinking they were safe from him. Then he came up from behind and grabbed one of his friends causing them to “freak out so bad.”

If he could meet anyone in history, Kannon would meet Leonardo Da Vinci to ask him what he should do now to be successful.

Junior Haley Andrew’s favorite quote is, “Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.” –Winston Churchill. She likes this quote because it has helped her realize that even though we fail sometimes, the experiences of this failure ends with unexpected success. In five years, Haley sees herself studying fashion construction and business at an amazing college. She can see herself as being a newly wed at the time.

Haley loves to sew, play tennis, cook, and surprisingly, she likes to clean. Her favorite subject in school is sewing because she loves to sew, and Haley also likes math because she’s good at it. 

What makes Haley different is that she is self-motivated. She doesn’t like to waste time on TV or playing games. She values her time and instead of following society and being lazy, she says she likes to, “get on my toes.”

One time Haley’s crush went down her zip line, and Haley’s hair got caught in the pulley. He was stuck hanging 30 feet up while she was trying to rip her hair out.

If she could talk with anyone in history, she would love to talk with Audry Hepburn. Haley would ask her how it feels to be the classiest woman, and if she ever wore sweats in public.

Junior Brandon Vincent’s favorite quote is, ““I see now that the circumstances of one’s birth are irrelevant… it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.” He likes this quote because it is so inspirational. Brandon’s favorite subjects in school are foods because we make delicious food or photography because he loves to take photos.

Brandon’s hobbies include bike riding and listening to music. Something interesting about him is that he has a titanium rod in his back from scoliosis surgery, and he is double jointed.

Brandon would like to meet President JFK because he would be an interesting person to talk to.

Senior Janelle Porter’s favorite quote is, “Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend is whole life believing that it is stupid.” She loves this quote because it shows we are all different, but we all have special attributes that we shouldn’t compare. In five years, Janelle sees herself going to college to get her BSN and having a family. Her favorite subject in school is health. She loves learning about the body, and how it functions. 

Janelle’s hobbies include spending time with her family as well as singing and playing the violin. The funnies thing that ever happened to her would be when she tripped on her choir robe going onto stage. It was really embarrassing for her.

Something that sets her apart is that she got her CNA this year and is now in the ER doing an internship. She absolutely loves the ER, and she loves helping people.

Janelle would want to have a conversation with Gandhi. She would ask him what drove him to stand up for what he thought was right.

Senior Thor Vest’s favorite quote is, “One of God’s greatest gifts to us is the joy of trying again, for no failure ever need be final.” –Thomas Monsen. He loves it because we are all human, and we make mistakes. But, we can learn from them and become stronger. Thor sees himself in five years as a returned missionary, done with an associate’s degree, have money saved in 401K and have investments.

Thor’s hobbies include weight lifting, fishing, and organizing. Some things that set him apart are his name, he’s an only child, he’s a strong leader, and he’s easy to talk to. His favorite classes are anything business related and ceramics. 

The funniest thing that happened to Thor was walking into the wrong restroom twice on accident at Gold’s Gym and had to run out.

If Thor could talk with anyone in history, he would talk with Joseph Smith and say, “Thank you.”
