Morgan is a sophomore at Liberty North High School. She is an active member of Youth With Vision, where she has participated in fundraisers, attended trainings, and networked with other teens. Morgan founded her school’s Teaching and Reaching Youth (TRY) club, an organization that functions like a Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) group.
Morgan has been able to be involved a variety of activities through her prevention work. She has traveled to Jefferson City, MO to visit with her state legislators, as well as attend the statewide Speak Hard Youth Conference. Morgan has been active in the Tobacco 21 campaign in her community, as well as the Arrive Alive campaign.
Prevention is important to Morgan because she recognizes that it is not always a topic people talk about often. Parents do not always know how to to talk to their teens, or the importance of doing so. Many teens hear conflicting messages from celebrities, and it is important to provide them with healthy messaging. Morgan wants to be a voice in her community on the importance of prevention, and how it can create stronger, safer communities.
