Stephenville senior Stacy Morgan wants to become a teacher, but not just any teacher. The 19-year-old wants to teach special education after graduating from college.
"I've always known I was meant to help people, I just wasn't sure exactly how until more recently," she said. "I volunteer when I have free time and it always seems to brighten my day."
1. What are some of your extracurricular activities?
I participate in FCCLA and I volunteer a lot. Mostly I help the Stephenville Historical Museum with Camp Pioneer and By-Gone Days as well as helping SPARD with camps and leagues and stuff.
2. What is your favorite memory of Stephenville High School?
I was named most hardworking person of the year in FCCLA and that meant a lot to me. It's nice to be recognized for volunteering even though that isn't what it's about at all. I was so honored.
3. Who is your biggest influence?
Probably my mother. She's always there for me, being my strength when I don't have enough. She's been through some tough situations and she doesn't let it stop her. She continues on bravely and that inspires me to do the same in my life.
4. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Hopefully teaching special education with a focus on first and second grade. I have a dream of teaching somewhere like Granbury ISD, so… fingers crossed.
5. What impact has this community had on your life?
This community, and the people who make it, are a huge influence in my life. It was in this community that I learned about volunteerism through camps and other civic events. I've seen how people in this community come together to help those in need and that inspired me to do more myself.
