News Blog Category - News Did you know Marion High School has a spirit shop? If you're looking for the perfect gift for the Marion Giants fan or student in your life, look no further!

Come out to the MHS spirit shop on Dec. 13 or 14 between 3 and 7 p.m. and pick out the perfect gift! The Marion High School Alumni Association will be staffing the shop during these times.

Proceeds help fund the many ways MHSAA helps to support Marion High School and Marion Community Schools. (They've given tens of thousands of dollars directly to school and extracurricular programs over the past few years, and they've raised more than $200,000 for the Giant Dreams Endowments at the Community Foundation of Grant County to help provide for the needs of Giants today and long into the future!)

If you can't come to the shop, you can place orders for some of the gear online: www.mhsalum.com/giants-spirit-shop. (NOTE: Delivery may not be guaranteed before Christmas. Please contact the individual printers for more information.)
