Walt Bowline, Mary Emily Frazer and Caden Tellier were selected through a competitive process among candidates from across the state displaying strong academics and leadership.

We are so proud of these outstanding student leaders and how well they will represent Morgan Academy, our city and county,” Morgan Academy Guidance Counselor Sheryl Schroeder said.
