Town Talk

The lovely and talented Stephanie Morris is a United States Award Winner in Foreign Language and Academics from the United State Achievement Academy. The Academy recognizes fewer than 10 percent of all high school students, and Ms. Stephanie is one of them. She was nominated by Mr. Cuevas, a teacher and coach at Eagle Valley High School, which works out well because that’s where Stephanie is a sophomore. Stephanie’s lovely visage will appear in the United States Achievement Academy official yearbook. She’s the beloved offspring of Susan Summey of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Steve Morris of Gypsum. Her grandparents are Dick and Jo Morris of Grand Junction and Don and Charlotte Joseph of Port Charlotte, Florida.
