Class Challenge for Public Education: Which MHS Alumni Class Will Win?


The Candler County Foundation for Public Education kicks off its annual community fundraising drive on October 1, 2019.


This year’s community fundraising campaign challenges MHS alumni and community members to a friendly competition between graduating classes.


“Teachers and staff have already contributed over $14,000 in donations,” said Foundation Chair Luke Lanier. “We are calling on community members and alumni to exceed the contributions of teachers and staff.”  


The MHS Alumni Class Challenge is a competition for charity. Each graduating class competes with one another to raise money for the Candler County Foundation for Public Education. The Class Challenge will run from October 1 - November 1, 2019.  The winning class will be announced early November.


Every dollar donated to the Candler County Foundation for Public Education helps to:

  • Strengthen academic programs 

  • Support innovative teachers and classroom experiences

  • Provide opportunities for Candler County students to compete in state, regional and national academic competitions


Not a graduate of MHS? That’s OK! You can assign your pledge to your favorite graduating class - or just make a donation.  Every dollar goes to advance learning experiences for Candler County Public School students.
