    Mr. Nielsen’s Math Class gets a visit from CEO’s:

    Next Wednesday, Mr. Nielsen is bringing in three retired business CEOs to his class to allow his students to ask questions about what it likes to start a business. This is part of a project he is developing. The students will be asked to use information to create their own business plan using information from class and from these visitors. The hope is that these individuals could partner with us more in the future to serve as mentors to students interested in business. And, if they get to a plan that is feasible, the mentors could help the students take the next step to actually starting a business of some sort.

    MC students visit with guests from Tanzania

    Elibariki Kisimbo and Joseph Kimbwereza visited Mid City High School students to talk about life in Tanzania.  The two work for the organization Empower Tanzania and spoke about the water crisis, schools, and health initiatives in Tanzania. The students came away with a new appreciation for such basic things like the water fountains in our schools. The students learned that in Tanzania you have to walk 6 miles or more to get a bucket of water (that is most often dirty) to take home for their family cooking and cleaning.
