Morgan Jones, daughter of Sheila and Bernard Jones, is a senior at Centennial High School and this week’s Student of the Week.
She enjoys playing basketball and is involved with YoungLife Campaigners. She was previously honored with a basketball award in eighth grade and was on the Homecoming Court at Centennial for the 2015-16 year.
Her biggest passion is basketball. She has been playing since she was little and said it has always been important to her.
Her two biggest role models and motivators are her parents, Bernard and Sheila.
Jones said, “They have been there for me and provide all the things I need in my life.”
Her favorite teacher is her math teacher from the previous year. She said that she really values his class and him as an educator because of how great his personality is and how he influenced her to do better in mathematics.
One of her teachers, Mrs. Kim Lockwood said of Jones, “Morgan is so kind to her fellow classmates. In addition, she always offers to help me with classroom set-up tasks.”
After finishing her senior year, she would like to attend Western Kentucky University or East Tennessee State University. She plans to pursue a degree in business marketing.
