Bronze Miner to be Purchased
The Mountain Ridge Miners have only been around for ten years, but the community and history of the coal mining of Western Allegany County goes back much further.  Coal mining has been a major part of our community since the birth of Frostburg, as we know it. It is only fitting that we honor that part of our heritage with a coal miner statue in front of our local high school.

Our goal as the Mountain Ridge Student Council is to purchase a bronze statue of a Miner to commemorate the mining background of our community.  The statue will be placed near the main entrance to the school.  A Mountain Ridge Miner Statue Fund has been created at the school.  As the Student Council of Mountain Ridge High School, we are reaching out to our community who share the same passion for remembering the miner history.  Your donations will help us to reach our goal of purchasing the bronze statue. 

A GoFundMe Account has been set up at to make donations toward the statue fund or you may mail in your donations with the attached form

Snowball Dance Date
The Mountain Ridge Student Council will host the annual Snowball Dance on Saturday, February 2, 2019 please see Mrs. Bittinger or a student council member for more information.
