Each principal in the Morgan County school system is working dilegently to start off the school year right. They are committed to implementing academic strategies and programs to enhance success and excellence in education.
Morgan County High School Principal Dr. Miki Edwards is ready to tackle her second year in charge, placing a special focus on the coming College and Career Academy.
“I have a vision for this because I have seen what it can do for students of every ability and interest level,” said Edwards. “When you let students find their niche in what they love and you build academics around their interests, it creates a wonderful environment. It gets them all thinking about their future…”
The Morgan County Primary School principal, Lisa Daniel is looking forward to changes coming to the primary school.
“It is going to be a great year!” said Daniel.
“Throughout the 16-17 school year we worked on goal setting with our students and focused on their individual needs in academics…We are also focusing on student engagement. MCPS will be adding more student devices and teachers will receive training in how to best engage students with technology. The media center will also undergo a phase II transformation with the addition of an outdoor classroom and mobile seating. This new 21st century learning space along with two new iLabs will provide teachers and students with flexible spaces for hand on learning. This is particularly important with the rollout of new science standards for the year.”
The middle and elementary schools will be under new leadership this year with two new principals.
Lara Still, a former Morgan County High School graduate and current assistant principal in the Oconee County School System, is the new elementary school principal.
“I am excited to be returning to Morgan County and to have the opportunity to serve as principal of Morgan County Elementary School. My goal as an administrator is to partner with parents, teachers, and staff to foster an environment where students are growing as learners, building strong character, and developing the skills needed to be successful in the 21st century,” said Still.
Hillary Meeler, former principal in Rockdale County, is the new middle school principal. “I am humbled and honored to have the opportunity to serve as the Principal of Morgan County Middle School. The school has a long tradition of excellence, and I will work hard to continue the legacy of success by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and the community. My family and I are excited about being a part of the Morgan County Charter School System.” said Meeler.
