2018-19 Uniform Update With the unforseen closing of Parker Uniforms, Manchester has chosen to go with the uniform provider, Dennis Uniforms. We will provide a link on our website to order as soon as it is available, and there will be a store in Jackson opening soon. Dennis Uniforms will offer many of the same items that Parker Uniforms carried. The plaid will be exactly the same. The monogram has changed. Therefore, students will be given a grace period of one year to wear any old uniforms. For the 2019-2020 school year, it will be mandatory to have the new monogram. The Maverick Store will offer some uniform approved shirts for sale. Thanks for your patience and understanding. We hope to make this transition easy for everyone.
Humphreys and Turner - 2018 Christian Leaders of the Future
Mississippi Christian Living, in partnership with Belhaven University, has selected its 2018 Christian Leaders of the Future. High School seniors from across the state submitted essay applications, answering questions about their faith, service and leadership experiences. The applications without the students' names, schools, or churches, were reviewed and scored by a diverse panel of local community leaders, each working independlently. Scores were tabulated and the top 31 were honored.
Two Manchester Academy seniors were named: Blake Humphreys and Elizabeth Turner.
Congratulations to Elizabeth and Blake on being selected as Christian Leaders of the Future!
