Update by Morgan:

Wow! A lot has happened since the last update. I completed 8th grade at the Miami Valley School and spent 5 days of my summer on a choir trip with my church. I spent a week at Lake Tahoe, a week at camp Victory Junction, and a few days watching my brother play in the US Kids Golf World Championship. I finished off my awesome summer with a weekend in Philadelphia with my mom to pick up my new wheelchair. You may be asking yourself, “ Why does Morgan need a new wheelchair? She can walk.” Well, I need one for my new school, Centerville High School. I decided in the spring that I need to be more independent since I will be going off to college in 4 years. So I left MVS and am now at CHS, a two story, 4 unit school with about 2800 students in grades 9-12. It was quite scary at first, but I’ve made friends and am loving it! I was the assistant stage manager for the fall musical, competed on the Model UN team, and am on the mock trial team.

A couple months ago, I was informed that I was the winner of a philanthropy award from the Association of Fundraising Professionals for my fundraising for Victory Junction and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. I was super excited and was accompanied to the awards luncheon by my mom, dad, brother, Ammie ( Pat Ingersoll ), Ampie (Russ Ingersoll), youth minister ( Nancy Hodgkins ), and 6th grade geography teacher who ran the MVS Make a Difference program ( Patti DeLotell ). It was a fantastic day and soon after we were contacted by WHIO, Dayton’s CBS station. They wanted to do a story on me for their Making a Difference segment. How awesome! They came to my school and filmed me going from class to class, took video in my choir class, and did an interview during my science class, as well as interviewing my parents. Simply cut and paste the link below if you want to see the story that ran on TV.
