Marian High School Closing Its Doors

Walking the halls of Marian High School, there are no signs that in just a few short months the well-loved school will have its last day in session. "It is difficult for all of us.

We take our police academy, the one we do for almost six months and we break it down to a 40 hour academy for the kids,” says Detective Crogan. “
