Celebrations and changes were the major themes of tonight’s meeting of the Morgan School District Board of Education.

Congratulations to our employee spotlights from the transportation department. Debbie Kinnear has been with the district since 1995, and has been driving for us since 2002. She enjoys her family, camping, snowmobiling and sports. Roger Price joined the district after 20 plus years in the military, including as a veteran of two wars. In addition to transporting our students, he’s known as an enthusiastic supporter of our teams. While they “don’t love the spotlight,” both were recognized for their love of the kids.

Congratulations to our girls' basketball on their state title and to all our winter sports teams on their success this season.

Congratulations to all our Sterling Scholars for their achievements. MHS is especially pleased to celebrate five runners-up and winners Lucy Tripp, Mathematics, and Hannah Cantrell, Science. Bravo to you all, and to Mrs. Pentz for your devotion to these kids and this opportunity.

Big changes are coming for key positions in the district. As previously announced, Andy Jensen will serve as the new superintendent, as Dr. Jacobs is retiring. Crae Wilson will move from the principalship at the high school to fill Jensen’s position as director of employee services. Luke Thomas, who joined the district as an instructional coach before moving to the role of vice principal, will be taking the reins as the new principal at the high school. Ramona Martin, who is currently an instructional coach for the district, will be the new principal at Mountain Green Elementary School, replacing Dr. Andreasen.

Congratulations to you all, and good luck in your new leadership roles.

The Board also held a public meeting on the proposed changes to fee schedules. They will vote on these changes at next month’s meeting on April 11, 2023 at 5 p.m.

As a reminder, spring break for the district will be April 1 through April 9.
