His son starting bringing home awards m horse showing when he was years old. i :, In face, the opportunities in i equine competition are a big part of why he applied for the :Malakoffjob, said Morgan. I : "We like East Texas, the lake I and the trees, and many of the !'paint horse shows and barrel ,race events are in Athens," said Morgan. His days as a principal are a far cry of his life back when he and Donna met. The two were both working for the Dallas Police Department. His wife left the police business and, shortly after, so did Mar- gall. He comes from a line of teachers, said Morgan. Both of his parents taught and his wife's parents were teachers as well, so it was natural for him to go into the education field. His father was a football and swim coach at the college level, so Morgan lived quite a few different places growing up, including Arizona, Califor- nia and Ohio.

His wife is also in education. When she's not competing in barrel racing, she's a diagnos- tician. Morgan's been on the job for a few weeks now, and so far it's been a wonderful experi- ence, he said. The staff has welcomed him and he's been impressed with the way the staff is perfoming in a tough situation. The elementary teachers are split between the intermediate and Orr cam- puses and sometimes space is hard to come by, he said, but everyone is doing very well. "The way the teachers get along with each other and with the other campus is a testimony to the district," said Morgan. He's looking forward to build- ing the new school. "You could be in education 30 years and not get to build and open a school. And they're very excited about that school," said Morgan. But between now and then, there are some challenges to be met. Morgan said he is work- ing with intermediate Principal Ronny Snow to make sure when the study body splits into Malakoff Elementary School and Tool Elementary School, that it will be as smooth a tran- sition as possible. The interme- diate and elementary campuses are already making sure there is continuity in discipline and other teaching matters, so that students know what to expect Policy Continued from Page 1 passing the TAKS test can be throughout the debate.
