MTCS Memories Project
As MTCS celebrates its 50th anniversary, we have an opportunity to preserve the school’s story. We invite anyone who has ever had any involvement with MTCS to take part in the MTCS Memories Project. We would like to record your memories of MTCS. You may do this as an individual or in groups of two. If you are willing, we would like to schedule an appointment for you to come to the school and record your special experiences. Rather than lose our collective memories, we would like to record them to share with each other and future generations. For more information contact Jason Faulkner at firstname.lastname@example.org or Debbie Hofbauer at email@example.com. You may also call 615-893-0602.
