“Community Conversations” town hall to highlight athletics in Marietta

Marietta City Schools (MCS) continues the “Community Conversations” town hall series on Tuesday, Feb. 28, from 8-8:30 p.m., with an overview of athletics in Marietta.

The “Community Conversations” series provides an opportunity for Superintendent Dr. Grant Rivera and other leaders in the school system to talk through major projects and initiatives. Families can ask questions and dialogue about topics that impact their students.

This month, Dr. Rivera, Athletics Director Craig McKinney, and middle school Athletics Director Josh Hawk will discuss athletic opportunities for students in K-12, summer camps, try-out information, and upcoming facility improvements.

“We are excited to be able to share the wide variety of athletic opportunities available to our students and the ways Marietta City Schools supports and invests in our athletes,” said Athletics Director Craig McKinney. “Sports help develop life skills like teamwork, leadership, and resilience, and we want to make sure our community knows about the many ways our students can engage in athletics here in Marietta.” 

The MCS athletics program is made up of 22 sports and more than 50 teams. Marietta has a rich history of accomplished players. At this year’s National Signing Day celebration, nine MHS student-athletes committed to continuing their athletic and academic careers at colleges and universities, earning a combined total of more than $1 million in scholarships.

This “Community Conversations” event will be virtual to make it convenient for people to join wherever they are. The virtual town hall will also be recorded so people who can’t make it can still access this valuable information.

The March “Community Conversations” will focus on college advising resources available to Marietta students, including an opportunity to engage with our two dedicated college advisors at Marietta High School.
