Graduation 2021-A Great Night of Celebration!

The Hill Center and Forsyth Sites, known as One Forsyth, held their graduation ceremony Thursday evening, May 27th, in the Performing Arts Center at Denmark High School.  Many friends and family members gathered to celebrate the 33 graduates.  The High Honor Graduates were Micayla Puffer and Jaime Graboski.  Numerous students received the Presidential Honor Award and Micayla Puffer was named as the Atlanta Journal Constitution Cup winner.  Mr. Lance White, owner of Lance’s Jewelry in Cumming, shared his entrepreneurial success story highlighting how he overcame adversity to become the reputable, successful business owner that he is today. His speech motivated students to “not take no for an answer” as they pursue their dreams.  We were delighted to have Julie Brennan, publisher of My Forsyth Magazine, attend the ceremony to celebrate with us.  Congratulations class of 2021!  We wish you great success as you head toward your next adventure in life.

2021 TOTY/SMOTY Winners are Announced

Congratulations to our Forsyth Site Teacher of the Year (TOTY) and Staff Member of the Year (SMOTY) for 2021!!!


TOTY 2021-Dr. Andra Kruse

Dr. Kruse has been an educator for 23 years.  She has taught at MECHS for 7 years, and she currently serves as a math teacher, a math tutor, and a BELAY.  Her mother was a teacher and she always wanted to be like her mother, so she too became a teacher.

Dr, Kruse considers her greatest accomplishment as a teacher to be the number of students she has helped pass math and earn their high school diploma. She remarked, “I get a good feeling inside when a student tells me thank you for helping me graduate.”

Her greatest hobby is growing and canning vegetables. She always has something growing, and she fills her freezer with fresh vegetables every summer. She also enjoys cooking for her family. In addition, she enjoys going to see LSU football games and New Orleans Saints football games.


SMOTY 2021 Amy Leggett

Ms. Leggett has been an educator for 27 years and has worked at MECHS for 3.5 years.

She currently serves as the Special Education Case Manager at the Forsyth Site. She read about MECHS and she knew several people who worked there.  She began as an English teacher but soon transitioned into her current role.

Ms. Leggett considers the greatest accomplishment of her career to be when she wrote a grant that was approved for $98,000 for Project Rabun Youth in Action Now.  Project RYAN was implemented for students who were facing significant challenges in life at Crossroads Alternative School in Rabun County.  The students learned discipline and academics and were rewarded with activities such as hiking and fishing. For many, it was the first positive interaction with police officers and educators they had ever experienced.  Project RYAN kept these students out of trouble.  Amy gained life-long friends during this time, and she has many awesome memories of working with those students. 

In her spare time, Amy enjoys writing letters, listening to music, taking walks to the lake, and doing arts and crafts.
