MMI Preparatory School, Freeland, recently recognized seven students in seventh, ninth and 1 1th grades as ‘Best of the Best' during an assembly program. The purpose of the program is to provide each student with the opportunity to explore varied subject areas not typically studied in the classroom. Students presented topics of interest to them, such as art, music, geography or culture, before a larger audience than they would be exposed to in a daily classroom environment. Each MMI student in grades 7 through 12 makes at least one appearance in an assembly program each school year. Students in eighth, 10th and 12th grades completed their projects in the fall. First place winner was junior Farrah Qadri for her presentation on extreme couponing. Student winners, from left, first row, are Samuel Sessock, Joshua Narrow, Marianne Virnelson and Gregory Yannes. Second row: Medina Saeed, Farrah Qadri and Syed Yusuf Qadri.
