MHS Eagle Scouts

Marietta City Schools would like to congratulate the five Marietta High School students who earned their Eagle Scout Award through Troop 252:

  • Kai Tallentire, 10th grade
  • Ryan Dater, 11th grade
  • Nicolas Common, 11th grade
  • Ryan Thompson, 11th grade
  • Joseph Bird, 12th grade

In order to earn the Eagle Scout status, a boy scout must complete 21 merit badges, fulfill leadership roles, perform outdoor skills, lead by example and by the Scout law, and complete a comprehensive service project. For their projects, Kai restored the St. Ann’s courtyard at St. James Episcopal Church, Ryan Dater built new violin and viola racks for the Marietta Middle School Orchestra room, Nicolas completed a mulching project for the North Marietta Neighborhood Community Garden, Ryan Thompson constructed a large wooden information kiosk and two benches around the lake at Schmidt Park, and Joseph built a greenhouse for West Side Elementary School.

MMS Theatre Students 

Marietta City Schools would like to congratulate the cast and crew of the Marietta Middle School (MMS) production of “Shuddersome: Tales of Poe” on their multiple wins at the 2022 Georgia Theatre Conference. Their successes include overall best play, best actress (Katie Minahan), best supporting actor (Kendall McQueen), and all-star cast members (Cam Davis and Rhodes Patrick). The cast of over 40 students performed the show over the weekend of October 6th and competed October 14-15th. The show featured vivid and theatrical adaptions of some of Edgar Allan Poe’s most significant works and was directed by MMS Theatre director Haley Walter.

Each year the Georgia Theatre Conference holds the Middle School Festival as an opportunity for middle school theatre groups to showcase their student’s abilities and compete against other schools in the state of Georgia. Throughout the conference, students have the ability to gain feedback on their performances and meet other students across the state who share their love for theatre.
