Catalyst is honored and grateful to partner with Adrian College through Project Intersect, a non-profit organization started by Mr. Taylor Docking and Adrian. On Wednesday, Adrian’s Vice President for Enrollment and Student Affairs Frank Hribar met with 15 CMHS scholars and awarded ALL scholarship money. One scholar, Wendy M. (pictured below with Vice Presindent Hribar) was awarded a full scholarship as the Project Intersect winner! She will receive a 4-year full tuition scholarship to Adrian and will be joining CMHS graduates Andrea M., Jesse M., John J., Mariah E., and Angee P. as CMHS graduates who are currently Adrian students. We are so proud of them!! Congratulations to Wendy, all scholars that received scholarships, their families, and the CMHS community, and many, many thanks to Adrian College for this incredible opportunity for our scholars!
The CM National Honor Society volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House last week to prepare a meal for the families staying there. The NHS sold candy grams for Valentine’s Day to raise the money to feed 20 people- pictured below are NHS members and staff leaders:
National Honor Society also collects unused food from the Friday bagged lunches, and instead of the food going in the trash, they take it to PADS shelter each Friday (pictured below).
TREMENDOUS leadership and embodiment of the Catalyst mission by NHS scholars and staff leaders!

Catalyst Maria HS team members Mrs. Comiskey and Mr. McNeely took 18 seniors to the Jane Addams Resource Corporation. Scholars got a glimpse into the world of manufacturing, and were able to learn about free job training programs with job placement. The Jane Addams Resource Corporation offers training in welding and CNC (Computer Numeric Controlled Machines) machinist work. Many thanks to JARC and great work by the CMHS post-secondary team!
