Morgan High School Community: We are Raider Pride!

Morgan High School Community: We are Raider Pride!

Morgan County, Ohio is a small rural community in southeast Ohio who has been impacted by loss. The whole community is struggling.  A couple of years ago, a car accident took the lives of two students.  This has impacted the community greatly. 

During the winter months of 2018, a young boy in grade 11 made a forever decision to end his life.  This wasn't easy on a community already hurting and looking for meaning and understanding.  Teachers, staff, parents, and community devastated.  The classmates and students crushed.  Then, a couple months later, another grade 11 young lady made a forever decision herself.  

They school community invites Teen Mental Health and Teen Suicide Prevention expert, Jeff Yalden to the school to speak to teens, teachers, parents and community.
