David Scott served in Vietnam from April 1965 to April 1966, with the Army’s 197th Armed Helicopter Company and 145th Battalion. Minus a few stints transporting cargo and troops, he mostly flew armed helicopters to suppress resistance aimed at U.S. ground troops. (Submitted photo)

Not all Scott's Coast Guard search and rescue missions were marine. He once had to help pick a man up off the top of a grain bin following an explosion. (Submitted photo)

Students have ‘MORE’ opportunities to engage with school, communities


As his MORE project, senior Corbin McElwaine has established a shoe reselling business where he buys shoes cheaply through an app, then resells them to people either in person or online. He plans to use the profits to purchase and donate cleats to the MFL MarMac football program. (Photos by Audrey Posten)

Senior Jonah Wille will build on his film and photography business, JW Productions. He started the venture in the inaugural MORE semester, this past spring. After purchasing his own equipment, Wille started sharing content on YouTube and social media, along with growing his personal learning network. He has so far created promo videos for the McGregor-Marquette Chamber of Commerce (pictured here), taken senior and couples photos and covered weddings, RAGBRAI, the Clayton County Fair and sports.

Bulldog Brock Hackett wraps up a West Branch runner with help from teammate Elias Hatt (12).

Hunter Meyer (53) and the offensive line helped pave the way for a combined 177 yards for MFL MarMac runners. That total was the most allowed by the Bears defense this season.

Wyatt Powell picked up 111 of MFL MarMac's rushing yards on 13 carries.

A team effort from Austin Schlee (left) and Kade McElwaine brings down a Bears runner in the Nov. 4 quarterfinal game.

The poor weather conditions made throwing difficult for Bulldog quarterback Zach Driscoll.
