Laker Legends Scholarship Gala
The 2018 Laker Legends Scholarship Gala will be held on February 3, 2018!
Save the date of February 3, 2018 for your Laker Legends Scholarship Gala! It’s a mid-winter Beach Bash featuring the music of Key West Express. Put on your best “resort wear” and join us for the biggest MPS party of the year. Flowered shirts and sundresses are appropriate.
The gala welcomes MPS alumni, current and past MPS families, and all of our Laker friends and community partners. Celebrate this year’s Laker Legends who will be honored for their accomplishments. The Beach Bash includes great live music, terrific food, and a chance to win some amazing prizes. Gather your friends and fill your table!
Money raised at the “scholarship auction” provides scholarships and financial aid to deserving students.

Thanks to everyone who made the 2017 Laker Legends Scholarship Gala such a great success. The capacity crowd of alumni, parents and other friends, plus the room full of roses, and great live music from Jackson Station made for a fun evening. Many got into the theme with elaborate hats and bow ties. One person even brought their own horse, (thanks Mr. Cooney!).
