amerrill, the article clearly states that getting all the girls asked was a goal and that she didn't quite reach it. However, she did do a heck of a lot more than anyone else did!! Is your daughter a senior? Personally I think this girl is AMAZING and way cool to go out of her way and try to do nice things for other people. And to get mad at her because she possibly missed one or two is unrealistic and unfair. Kudos to you Morgan, I hope my daughters grow up to be like you!

I believe this girl has set a great example that each school should emulate. A student committee should be formed in the fall and they should start doing publicity surrounding prom - explaining to the students that it is an occasion that every senior should have the opportunity to participate in, and getting everyone on board with that vision.

Then, the lists should be kept, just as Morgan did, with parents and teachers all understanding the goal of everyone being included in the prom (all the Seniors). A few weeks before the event, a concerted effort should be made to make arrangements for all the students to have a date. If there aren't sufficient boys, I'll bet boys who graduated the year previous would sign up to take a girl to prom if they were called upon - and wouldn't those girls be excited!

My son took 3 girls to 3 different proms, one out of state. One was his choice, the other two were invitations. The girls' parents were proactive it was really fun and not at all awkward. Sometimes everyone needs to pitch in to make our world a great place for everyone.

Nice job

We need more people spreading good and trying to make a positive difference.

Well done.

I know Morgan personally and understand that her intentions were to help as many seniors as possible enjoy their last year at prom. Not every girl was asked but her efforts helped ignite more couples going to prom. I am proud of her and know that many were able to enjoy a fun filled evening! Way to care about others Morgan!

I know Morgan personally and understand that her intentions were to simply help as many seniors as possible to Prom. She knew she wouldn't be able to get every girl asked that wanted to attend but just the fact that she even cared and tried is amazing to me. For the Lehi parent that is upset with Morgan's efforts, I am sorry you hold resentment, but parents can also be involved... Morgan's grandpa took one of his grand daughter's to Prom one year because she hadn't been asked. She ended up having a great time! I commend Morgan for her efforts and caring heart!
