  • High school is like much of life - you get out of it what you put into it. I admit I didn't engage as much as I could have but met some wonderful people and many remain as friends.

    I'm also looking for a yearbook for 1971. Of course I'll pay!

  • I went to Morningside from 1969-1973. I had the best time in high school, loved the school and the teachers I had. I was in the drama dept. I look forward to the class reunion this year in July.

  • I loved this school when I went there. I would love to go back and support the students. The school seems to have a great deal of unity. I went to visit about 3 weeks ago and the kids seemed eager to learn. I give back through the Target rewards program. I think everyone should give back to their school if they had good experiences like I did in High School.
