Learning.  This term can mean so many things, but in the Morgan FFA we strive to learn all we can in every possible way.  Over the course of the last several weeks, FFA teams have been practicing all across Northern Utah to compete at the renowned Snow College Competition.  Competitions here focus on real life agriculture with areas of study such as agronomy, dairy cattle, horses, range, floriculture, soils and more.  Your very own students here at Morgan High School have been learning more and more about each of these individual subjects through the Morgan FFA all in the end goal of competing at Snow College.  “The FFA trip to Snow College was a worthwhile experience.  The participating team members participated in a challenging and educational experience.  Additionally, we were able to meet new people and have a good time,” says Daxton Rowser, Morgan FFA member, when asked about the competition.  Also, the Morgan FFA chapter would like to thank every person who has ever coached one of our teams; you’re guiding hands have taught us a great amount.

Thank you to the 

Morgan County Historical Society for pictures and history information.

 

In, looking back over the history of the Morgan County High School, one must regard its rapid development as most miraculous. In the fall of 1911, the high school began to take firm footing. The first year saw a sturdy bunch of twenty-two students and one instructor, Principal H. B, Fry, working hard against a thousand difficulties; yet never having the least idea of the great foundation they were laying. One room comprised the spacious apartments of the school in the present grade building.

I am writing this at the request of my 96 yr. old mother, Vera Carter.  (She wrote for the paper for many years)

She read the article from Sid Creager about his leaving the Council, he cited one line of the ‘School Song’.

It brought back many memories of her days attending Morgan High and also teaching there.  

It is her request that you print the whole song.  “Maybe there are others that would enjoy ‘remembering’.

Thanks for your consideration.
