Autism organizations estimate that it costs about $60,000 a year to provide adequate educational, medical, and therapeutic services to an autistic child.  There are an estimated two million people with autism spectrum disorders in the United States, more than 500,000 of whom are children.  The rate of one in 68 children is a more startling one.  
Each April, Autism Speaks celebrates “Light It Up Blue” in commemoration of World Autism Awareness Day. “Light It Up Blue” is a global initiative that kicks off Autism Awareness Month and helps raise awareness about autism. In honor of this historic day, many iconic landmarks, sporting venues, bridges, and stores are among the thousands of communities that “Light It Up Blue.”  Mayfield Independent Schools participated this year, and the cheerleaders, led by Abby Bryant, decided to do something special for the event coordinator, Mrs. Dowdy.
As a teacher at Mayfield High School and the parent of an autistic child, Mrs. Dowdy encouraged all Mayfield Cardinals to “Light It Up Blue” in honor of all autistic families, especially the autistic children in our community.  When one of Mrs. Dowdy’s twin sons, Colson, was recently diagnosed with autism just shy of his second birthday, she was quite upset and confused to say the very least.  However, with the help of local agencies, medical professionals, a few outstanding Mayfield educators, and the Autism Speaks charity, her family is more educated and prepared.  “We now know autism is a gift, and it’s up to us to use it as God intended.”  ~ Kara Dowdy, MHS Junior English Teacher and Cheer Coach 
As a result of Mrs. Dowdy’s “Light It Up Blue” initiative, the cheerleaders decided to surprise Mrs. Dowdy with a shirt of her own in honor of one of her twins, and they also purchased shirts for themselves to wear every Tuesday during April, which is Autism Awareness month.

MHS is based on three essential foundations. Pride, Tradition, and Excellence. In 2011 we graduated 89 students who recieved 3.5 million dollars in scholarship offers. This last year our academic index rated our school first in Western Kentucky and 9th overall in the state.

MHS has a tradition of excellence. Our football team was undefeated State Champions last year. Our girls track produced 2 State Champions and our baseball team won the Region. Our band finished 4th in the State and FBLA produced 9 State winners who advanced to Nationals.

Our great traditions at MHS are continually growing stronger. The Mayfield Cardinals pride themselves on being successful in all aspects of education. We invite you to visit our school so we can show you more.
