Meet Morgan, a talented student with a dream and a Plan to get there.

Morgan is a busy high school student with a fondness for soccer and softball. She is a member of the student council, holds down a part-time job and has her eye on a career in the medical field. And by the way, Morgan has a learning disability, which hasn’t gotten in her way!

With the support of her family and school, Morgan has developed a Transition Plan that will prepare her for life after high-school, including college, preparation for the career field of her choice, and an independent life.

“My goal after I graduate from high school is to attend a four-year college and enter the medical field. I really enjoy the
idea of helping people lead healthy lives. During my high school years, I have been active and like spending time outdoors.
I play soccer in the fall and softball in the spring and I’m also a member of my high school’s Fish and Game Club. My days are
pretty busy so the most fun part of my day is actually soccer practice after school because it’s a way for me to relax.”
Morgan, Student
Monadnock Regional High School
