The Alumni Collection

Working with Minnetonka High School and the Minnetonka School District, we are compiling a list of works by alumni who are authors, artists and musicians. In doing so, our aim is to introduce current and future MHS students to the breadth and depth of talent in our alumni community and display the accomplishments of former Minnetonka students.

What could be more inspiring to students who are developing their own talents and considering future careers, than examples of successful graduates from their school?
