Why nominated? Jonathan Horbacz, math teacher, writes, “Morgan is a student whose high character stands out in a crowd. She is the first to volunteer whether it is needed or not; Morgan will then go above and beyond to make sure that everyone is included or has a partner for an activity. Also, Morgan works extremely hard for the grades she receives and is willing to put in the extra effort to ensure she succeeds. Morgan will continue to succeed because of her work ethic, her ability to lead quietly but confidently, and her contagious smile that lights up the room.”
