In June Morgan Elementary Principle Laraine Whitear died of cancer. Speaking of Whitear, Superintendant Ken Adams said, “Laraine was one of the kindest human beings I have ever been privileged to associate with. We began and completed our administrative degrees together at the University of Utah. We spent many hours conversing during the long rides to the campus. She demonstrated a deep love for the students of Morgan and a great respect for our educational system. She was intelligent, articulate, and charitable. What a wonderful blessing it was for us to know and associate with her.”
Whitear was loved by her students and has been greatly missed. A scholarship fund has been set up in her name. The scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior of Morgan High School.
Donations can be made at 1st Bank under the name of Loraine Whitear Education Scholarship.
