My Preparedness Story: Staying Healthy and Resilient Video Challenge Finalist Submission

The Florida Keys Junior Medical Reserve Corps was challenged by their parent organization Florida Keys Medical Reserve Corps to promote mosquito-borne illness prevention, specifically the Zika virus.  Whereas the Florida Department of Health declared a public health emergency in neighboring Miami-Dade county, the Florida Keys Medical Reserve Corps saw the opportunity to collaborate with the Florida Keys Mosquito Control and Junior program, and align this public health crisis with it’s mission to improve the health, safety and resiliency and preparedness of their communities.
Now a finalist in the competition, the Marathon High School- based Junior Medical Reserve Corps, led by MHS staff registered nurse and MRC member Lori Denny, RN, put together a 60 second video of a recent outreach effort to educate the public about mosquito prevention and safety.  The video may be viewed online at or on the Florida Keys MRC Facebook page at

The video will also be sent to the
 ( website for a chance to be awarded funding for the teens efforts in this cause.

Scam alert - Marathon area
A company that calls itself "Sports Media" is reportedly attempting to sell advertisements to businesses in the Marathon area for a "Marathon High School 2016 Spring Sports Poster." This is a scam and this company is not affiliated in any way with our local schools.

Mock Trial Team
The Marathon High School Mock Trial Team staged a lively competition against the Coral Shores High team on February 29 for the district championship.  The MHS team role-played prosecution attorneys and witnesses in the State of Florida v. Logan Bartram, a criminal case about cyberstalking and photo cyber harassment. The case was heard at Plantation Key Courthouse by an actual judge and a jury of local attorneys.  Students on both teams were given advice by local attorneys in advance of the competition.

Though the talented MHS team staged aggressive prosecution arguments, the CSHS team won the match.  The CSHS team will now advance to the FLREA-sponsored State Mock Trial Competition in Orlando on March 17-19, 2016.

Participating on the MHS Mock Trial Team this year are the following students:  Milly Cruz, Britney Cunningham, Chris Freeman, Hannah Gracy, Mackenzie Helms, Melanie Ornelas, and Rebekah Smith.  Dr. Elizabeth Bayerl serves as faculty advisor for the team.
