The Mexico Public Schools recently received a commendation from the Missouri State High School Activities Association for a job well done by staff and volunteers involved with this spring’s district track meet at Hawthorne Heights.
The letter, signed by Harvey Richards, MSHSAA associate director, reads as follows:
“On behalf of the Missouri State High School Activities Association Board of Directors and the participating schools, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for hosting a MSHSAA District and/or Sectional Track and Field Meet.
“As you well know, it takes many hard-working people to make an event successful. Through the support of you and your school district, the 2012 State track and field series has met with great success. This perhaps was one of our best years for the administration of meets.
“Please pass on my congratulations and sincere appreciation to all those that helped you.
“Interscholastic events are an integral part of the school program and must serve their purpose to ‘teach through activities.’ Your leadership and efforts, as well as the others involved, helped this activity serve its purpose. I really appreciate your help and support of the track and field program.”
