Alexea Michaela Morgan
passed away Wednesday night after a tragic tree climbing accident. Alexea was a fifth
grader at Mulkey Elementary, where she was on the honor roll and competed in
the talent show. Teachers said she was a friend to all and had a contagious
spirit. Principal Jami Seay said she was a student who was always willing to
help and would do anything for anyone. "She would always care for a
special needs student that rode her bus; she was just such a nurturer," continued
Counselors were on hand
Thursday to help students cope with the loss of their friend and classmate. Students also wrote
letters for Alexea's family to help them reflect on their memories of her. She
will be greatly missed, but students are reflecting on all the good she brought
to their lives.
Alexea's legacy will
continue on as her family was able to donate her organs and possibly save the
lives of six other children.
Funeral arrangements have not yet been made.
