We would also like to invite High School students and their families to our annual BBQ pork dinner. Dinner will be served from 4:00 until 7:00. Please RSVP your attendance so that we know how many people to plan for. You can RSVP by returning the bottom portion of a flyer which is available in the main office, calling 989.687.3300 and using extension 3117, sending an email to RSVP@merps.org or by going to our website and the Special Events page. Please note that we need to know your student's name, your name, your email address, and the number of people attending the dinner. If you have any questions regarding either conferences or the dinner, please contact our office at 989.687.3300.


Congratulations to LeeAnn Whaley for being selected as the Student of the Month at the High School! For winning this, LeeAnn gets a premiere parking space out front to use for the entire month, a pizza party during the month for her and a few friends, a gift card to a local business and passes for up to four people to attend an event at Tri-City Speedway. If you do not know LeeAnn, she is a senior attending Delta College for the second year. She is currently taking Statistics and Anatomy and intends to transfer the credits she earns while in high school toward a pre-medical bachelors degree at Harvard, Duke, Tulane, U of M, MSU or CMU. When all is said and done, she wants to be a Physician's Assistant.

LeeAnn is heavily involved in our Robotics Team, volunteers at her church, and likes hanging out with friends, riding bikes, going for walks, and reading.

When asked to share her thoughts of Meridian Early College High School and the programs we offer, LeeAnn spoke highly of our early college opportunities. She appreciates the trust we put in students who go to Delta and the autonomy they enjoy. When it comes to supporting her in decisions about her future, she said that she appreciated the work of Mr. Brian Cone. The fact that we have a member of our team specifically focused on college-related questions is a big deal to her.
