MTA hosts annual scholarship game

MAYFIELD – The Mayfield Teachers Association sponsored its 35th annual MTA Scholarship Game on March 9.

This benefit game was established in 1983 by the Mayfield teachers to raise money for scholarship awards that are given to three graduating seniors each year.

This year was a very successful year, thanks to the Mayfield Teachers, the Mayfield Athletic Booster Club, and Mayfield Volunteer Fire Department for volunteering their Friday night, and the community members who came in order to raise money to be awarded to three seniors from the class of 2018.

Many events took place throughout the evening. The night was filled with the entertaining presence of the MCS Precision Team, the performance by the high school cheerleaders, the basket raffle and 50/50 raffle drawings, as well as much more.

The night started out with the National Anthem performed by Cameron Allen.

Following, there was a basketball game between the fifth- and sixth-grade boys with the White team beating the Blue team, 26-24. High scorers of the event were Labron Hudson on the White team and Sean Forman on the Blue Team.

The Blue Team won over the Gold Team in the fifth- and sixth-grade girls’ basketball game, with a score of 24-22. High scorer for the Gold Team was Cloey Dopp, and high scorer for the Blue team was Alexis Broderick.

The Elementary Precision Team gave a performance at halftime. The team consists of fifth- and sixth-grade girls who perform a dance-type routine under the direction of Mrs. Clute and Mrs. McMullen.

There was also a volleyball game played between the Mayfield staff and the Senior Class of 2018, with the staff winning over the seniors.

Both the elementary and junior high schools held a poster contest prior to the MTA game. The elementary winners were: fourth grade, Tristan Case; fifth grade, Braydon Kristel; and sixth grade, Cody Hayes.

At the high school, first place went to Jordan Buanno in seventh grade and Heather Ginter in eighth grade.

The evening was a success due to the support and cooperation of many local businesses. Because of their donations, 100 percent of the profits can go directly to the scholarship fund.

The Mayfield Teachers Association would like to thank, the MCS clubs and organizations that helped out, Rick Hoose and his staff, the Mayfield Athletic Booster Club, all of the classes who donated theme baskets, the MCS administrators and support staff, and everyone from the community who came out to support the Mayfield Teachers Association and the students of the Mayfield School District.
