Mr. Matthew Morgan

Mr. Matthew Morgan is a 2015 graduate of Fairmont State University (FSU) with a Bachelor of Arts in music education. At FSU, his passion for music earned him awards such as Excellence in Music Theory, Excellence in Conducting, and the Matthew Morgan Dance Award (named after him upon graduation). Because he was selected for All-State Choir twice in high school and participated in Collegiate Honor Choir a total of four times, his original instrument of choice was voice. However, marching band quickly became his passion upon finding Drum Corps International (DCI) and becoming a Bluecoats fan. He has participated in multiple band camps: eight as a marching member (with titles such as Section Leader, Brass Caption Head, and Assistant Band Commander) and five as an instructor prior to becoming the Band Director at North Marion High School in the fall of 2017. His goal is to inspire the future of music educators at North Marion High School. 


Mrs. Resa Morgan

Mr. Morgan’s wife, Resa, is the color guard instructor for North Marion High School. She has been involved in marching band since 2007, where she played flute and bass drum. In 2010, she became a color guard member. In college, she began writing routines for Fairmont State University, where she graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She has been by Mr. Morgan's side with the band since starting in 2017. Her routines have won her color guard Best auxiliary multiple times. Her dedication is shown as she doesn’t miss a practice or performance.
