The Mission Recycling Committee (MRC) adds to the efforts of improving the environment by advocating recycling. The focus is to establish a long lasting recycling program, to encourage recycling, and to spread recycling awareness to every student at the school. At Mission High, there is a requirement of 40 hours of community service in order to graduate. Many students push this requirement off until their senior year, risking stress and possibly their graduation. I hope to get students to complete their community service hours early on by encouraging younger students to volunteer with MRC and to encourage long-lasting civic participation.
