What makes our school special

The school's namesake, Garrett Morgan, was the son of former slaves and a Kentucky native born in 1877 in Paris. He created and patented several inventions, including an early model respirator credited for saving the lives of rescuers during a 1916 tunnel collapse in Ohio. His most notable invention is still in use today: the current model of the traffic light, which incorporates a yellow warning signal. Morgan represents the innovation, diligence, and creativity that we seek to instill and cultivate in all of our students.
