The Social Studies Department is in search of parent volunteers to help with an American Government financial literacy simulation through The Junior Achievement Personal Finance Experience.  Two Howard County high schools are selected each year to participate in this worthwhile program that runs students through a simulation geared toward making some of the significant financial decisions that they will encounter as adults.  No experience is necessary to volunteer.

The simulation will take place on Friday, May 27, 2016 in the MRHS Cafeteria from 7:45AM to 10:30AM.
