’12 Things You Don’t Know About Ms. Morgan

Assistant Principal Karyn Morgan has stood alongside of the class of 2012 throughout its entire high school career – from the fall of 2008 to the spring of 2012. Although her job is challenging, Morgan has created a bond with the senior class that is truly special. Beyond her relationship with the students, Morgan, as an assistant principal, is responsible for organizing events, schedules, student discipline, attendance problems, and much more. In honor of Morgan and the work she does it seems natural to take a little time to learn a little more about someone who has given so much to Staples and to the class of 2012.
