2016 MHHS 2016 MHHS 2016 MHHS ATHLETE SYMPOSIUM!!
Mountain Home High School is excited to present the first annual MHHS Athlete Symposium. The heart of this event is to bring in motivational speakers to discuss relevant athletic topics with our athletes and students at MHHS. Some of the topics will include leadership, academics, attitude/effort, being a good teammate, coping with adversity, and citizenship. Through this experience, our athletes will be able to take the lessons from our speakers and apply them to the athletic field, the classroom, and their everyday lives. This year we are proud to present MHHS Hall of Fame Alumnus, Angela Taylor and former Boise State Head Football Coach, Dan Hawkins.
