NFL Player Derrick Morgan Visits High School Alma Mater
On May 4, 2017, students, teachers and administrators welcomed home NFL player and Quarterback of Life Derrick Morgan. Derrick visited his high school alma mater and spoke to students during a motivational Quarterbacks of Life assembly program. Derrick has sponsored 15 schools in Pennsylvania and 15 schools in Tennessee to receive access to the Quarterbacks of Life Student Success & Leadership Program.
“The Quarterbacks of Life Student Success & Leadership Program highlights many people, who like Derrick Morgan, have overcome great adversity to become leaders in their communities. The Coatesville Area School District is proud to partner with and support the work of the Beating the Odds Foundation. The initiative’s STEM/NASA opportunities will be integral in the development of our future engineers, chemists and mathematicians. We look forward to working with Derrick to inspire and encourage our students for many years to come,” Dr. Cathy Taschner, Superintendent, Coatesville Area School District.
