Late Friday morning a long-time educator and contributor to the Logan City School District announced she would be resigning early. Connie Morgan released a statement through the school district that she would be resigning early from her position on the Logan City School District Board of Education.
She <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/1603501973266581/photos/a.1615457798737665.1073741827.1603501973266581/2016012595348848/?type=3&theater” target=”_blank”>announced her plans</a> to resign effective 5:01 p.m. on February 28, 2018.
“It has been a privilege to associate with like-minded people dedicated to working for the benefit of all children,” Morgan states in an official release. “I shall surely miss the opportunity to share my perspectives gleaned from 50 years as a professional educator, as well as the chance to learn from the experiences and insights of my fellow Board members, and the joy of interacting with teachers and students throughout the District.”
Morgan states that she would prefer to complete her term in office, but a recent move that took her out of District 4 will prevent her from continuing her service on the board. District 4 covers the neighborhoods surrounding Mount Logan Middle School and near Adams Elementary.
Logan City School District Superintendent Frank Schofield says Morgan mentored him as a young teacher and he will miss her humor and insights on the board.
“Connie is a committed educator whose knowledge and background have had a positive influence on the services our district provides to students,” Schofield said in a statement released by the district. “Connie is a kind, loyal friend, and I will miss her humor and insights. I wish her well in her retirement.”
Next Tuesday, January 23rd, the school district will begin the process of naming a replacement for Morgan on the board to represent District 4.
