Thanks to Dr. Mark Wilson for all of his work at Morgan County High School
To the Editor:
I wanted to write to express my gratitude for all you have done to make my own and so many others' high school experience the best possible, but honestly I’m not sure if there are words that can adequately express the impact you are leaving on MCHS. After speaking with several other people from other high schools, I know that what we have at our school is unique and special. You have built a group of teachers and staff that teach and mentor the students to excel, to think outside the box, to be leaders, and to be responsible citizens. I have met so many life-changing teachers at MCHS, who not only taught me valuable academic knowledge, but who also taught me valuable life skills. One thing that I have taken from my "One Morgan" experience is that excellence is not just about good grades. Excellence can be, and should be, achieved in every aspect of life, whether in character, musical abilities, sports, hobbies or anything else. You lead this school with a sort of unspoken motto of “If you can dream it, you can do it.” Thanks to you, our school has an overwhelming atmosphere of acceptance, creativity, and encouragement. My high school experience has not only been preparing me academically for college, but socially for both college and life in general. I am proud to call MCHS my school, and even more proud to call you my principal. You are both an outstanding leader and an outstanding person. I can see this in how every type of student at our school gives you respect even if they don’t give it to anyone else, because of the way you respect everyone’s individual uniqueness. I am sad to see you go, but happy to think that you will be making a difference, like you made in my life, in more people’s lives than you ever could have here. Thanks for all you do.
