Volunteers Needed!

2020 Junior Interview Day – March 26, 2020

MRHS Student Services is looking for parent volunteers to help with our Junior Interview Day, on March 26, 2020. The Junior Interview is a graduation requirement for all students. This process has been a huge success in the past because of the many parents who have volunteered their time. You will be conducting mock interviews and reviewing students’ resumes.


Junior Interview Day will be split into two sessions (7:30am-10:15am and 11:00am-2:10pm). We are aware of the time constraints limiting many professionals and invite you to attend one or both sessions. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to all interviewers, compliments of Marriotts Ridge.

If you are able to help with our Junior Interview Day, please click on the link below BY FEBRUARY 21 . If you haven’t already done so, please complete the HCPSS Volunteer Training.  (See information below)  We will contact you with additional details and information as we get closer to the Interview Day.  Please note:  We create our schedule based on your RSVP.  If at all possible, please try to keep your volunteer slot.  If you have any questions, contact Karen Leaf  at 410-313-5446 or

Thank you for helping our MRHS students!

We can’t hold this event without you!
