  1. I am so sorry to note the passing of Mr. Morgan. He will always be remembered by his students as a tough but fair science teacher. He helped many a student including me get over my squimishness and disect that frog. I can remember him holding court in the classroom in his white shirt and his black Buddy Holly glasses with an impish grin on his face. He made science seem interesting and important like a secret he would share with us. When our attention lagged I recall him gripping the support pole in the lab and suspending himself horizontally like a gymnist in the olympics. He gained our respect for his knowledge and his strength. I hope his family knows he touched many lives in a positive way. Kathy
