Thanks to all the attendees to our Arts and Crafts Fair. Patsy Cantrell Raybuck won the raffle quilt. She bought her ticket at the Fair. Everyone was happy for her since her husband has been ill. Bernice Larner reports a sell out of 295 jars of jelly. She said that she is going to have to make some more since several orders were made by people who did not get their jelly.
The Saturday Breakfast was also a success. One of the largest donations, $1,080 was received with approximately 170 hungry people in attendance. Thanks to the workers, Ed and Glenda Withers, Sonya and Corey Reagan, Gailen Parker, Roscoe Davis, Dink and Martha Keith, Gary Key, and Barbara McKnight. We appreciate the local support that we get from all of our neighbors
Our student of the month for September is a familiar face around Morgan Mill, Brayden Coverdale. Brayden is an eighth grader and our football team’s quarterback. He said that he has been working a lot this summer to get in shape for the games. His favorite thing about Morgan Mill is the small school atmosphere. He likes knowing everybody. His favorite teacher is Mrs. Couch. Mrs. Couch had great things to say about Brayden. She said that he makes straight A’s and is a positive role model for the kids. She said that Brayden is dependable. If you send him on an errand, you know that it will get done. Brayden, also, is active in 4-H. He is vice-president of his group and shows goats. Last year, he won first in showmanship and was third in his class for goats. When the PTF was clearing the shrubs around the school windows, Brayden was there stacking limbs in the trailer. He is always ready to help when needed. Brayden has three stepbrothers, two stepsisters, and a sister, Makinzi, is in the first grade in Morgan Mill. His proud parents are Matt and Dr. Nicki Colbert. Congratulations to a well-deserving young man.
