What is MVUnity ?
MVUnity is a program to bring together community members with MVU students, teachers, and staff to shape the direction of our school, and better share our resources. Funding for the first two years comes from the Rowland Foundation, who awarded MVU Social Studies teacher Alyssa Urban $75,000 to oversee this project, and will provide ongoing support.
