Hurrah for Morgan Mill!

When Spring Break and Easter is over, my thoughts go to who are our 2018 graduating seniors. 

Every year, since I can remember, the MM Arts and Crafts Association gives our Morgan Mill graduating high school seniors one hundred dollars.  When you attend the Arts and Crafts Fair in September, spend more, our seniors appreciate it.  This year, Cece Cline is number one on the list.  As an eighth grader in Morgan Mill, she said, “I’m not ready to leave Morgan Mill”.  She was skeptic on following in her sisters’ and her brother’s footsteps in Stephenville.  She found her calling at Stephenville High School in cross country.  She was their manager for four years.  She was also basketball manager for two years.  Cece plans on attending Ranger College in Cosmetology. 

Sid Davis came to MM his fifth grade.  When I talked to his peers, they all agreed that he was going to be Valedictorian for their year.  He was one of the smallest kids in his class, but he did not let that stop him in MM.  He played football, baseball, and basketball.  When he got to Stephenville High School, he played basketball for three years, baseball for two years, and basketball manager his senior year.  He was in high school UIL in science and current events issues.  He was in both the National Honor Society and Spanish Honor Society.  Sid plans to attend Tarleton with a double major in math and physics. 

Adriana Moreno started training for Stephenville High School drill team, the Stingerettes, during Spring Break for her eighth grade year.  Four years later, she received the “Hard Work and Dedication” award for her efforts in Stings.  She was proud to announce that the Stings were National Golden Champions this year.  She will be going to Weatherford College specializing in Special Education. 

Hanna Pierce was the last of the Pierce clan to attend MM.  She had fond memories of her fourth grade Valentine Party because it snowed.  During her freshman and sophomore years in Stephenville she was the manager of the Volleyball team.  Her last three years she has enjoyed tech theater.  In the UIL contest, she competed in film.  She is also a member of Thespian Society.  She plans to attend Ranger College and major in Business. 

Taegan Bottelberg attended MM for six years.  She missed her eighth grade class’ Valentine Dance because she was showing her cows in Houston at the Live Stock Show.  She is still busy with FFA.  She has shown pigs for four years.  She has had the Grand Champion pig in Ft. Worth and in Houston.  She won Champion Senior Showmanship in Ft. Worth and had the Champion pig at the State Fair. 

During high school, she played basketball for two years and cross country for two years.  She plans to attend Weatherford College to become a Vet Assistant.  She wants to learn Equine Sports Therapy and be certified in the Magma Wave Machine for horses and pigs.  Good luck to all of our seniors and they will be getting their money at a Community Supper in May.
