MENDOTA – Every year, it’s a struggle to choose someone who fully embodies the qualities of a Trojan Hero. After the year we have had, the 2021 Trojan Hero was no question. It is with great pleasure that Mendota High School announces this year's Trojan Hero, Mrs. Sheri McConville, the District 280 nurse.
McConville spends her days taking care of all the students at MHS. The amount of time she has put in to help fight the COVID19 spread is enormous. McConville takes the time to create a sense of community at Mendota High School. Oftentimes, McConville uses her caring nature to comfort students who do not feel well, while building a stronger connection and growing relationships with MHS students. Outside of school, McConville spends time with her family, takes care of her husband and is a super grandma to five grandchildren. MHS, without any reservations, believes McConville encompasses the attributes of a true Trojan Hero.
