We Are Part of Something Bigger – by Mary Kate Staunton
I am currently a junior at The Morgan School. I am in the honors program, I play soccer, I fence, and I run track. I am the secretary of the Interact club and a member of the National Honor Society.
My peers and I have been given so many opportunities to succeed and so much help to reach our goals, largely due to the dedicated staff at Morgan. With their constant devotion and encouragement, I push myself every day. They are involved every step of the way and make it their constant priority to prepare us not only for college or any future career, but for the rest of our lives as contributors to the world. They teach us that we are part of something bigger than ourselves, and that is something we will take with us for the rest of our lives.
Students count on sufficient education funding to succeed. We appreciate when our community shows us they care. I would like to thank all the teachers, coaches, and everyone who has contributed to my success and believes in me. Please don’t ever think students don’t care or don’t notice—we do.
