During de Buzna’s tenure, Morgan has received numerous honors.

The school is a 15-time winner of Alabama Independent School Association’s (AISA) President’s Award for academic achievement and an 11-time winner of the AISA Chairman’s Award for athletic achievement.

de Buzna believes the honors bestowed on Morgan throughout the years is a testament to the school’s standing among larger schools in the state.

As de Buzna said, “That’s not bad for a school in west Central Alabama that is up against the big boys.”

de Buzna has helped many students reach their full potential during his tenure at Morgan.

In fact, he says the best part of his job is observing the exuberance of children and their insatiable wonder and curiosity.

We salute de Buzna on his achievements, and wish him well in his retirement and future endeavors.

He will be missed by the Selma community.
