I have been a Media Specialist for the last 12  years.  I have served at MCHS for the past 11 years. This year I will be splitting my time between the high school and the middle school. I worked from January 2003-July 2004 in Webster County serving Sebree and Slaughters Elementary Schools.


The MCHS Media Center is committed to providing students and faculty with the resources needed to achieve proficiency in research and technology.  Books, magazines, and computer resources are available for all to use.

  The card catalog is accessable to anyone with internet access through the web address


Barnes and Noble NOOKS!

The media center has Nooks available for checkout.  The Nooks are a loan period of one week, but may be renewed at the end of that week.  Any student wishing to checkout a Nook must have a permission slip on file, signed by both the parent and student.  The slip can be obtained from Mrs. Upchurch in the Media Center or online here
