Guest columnist this week is Rachel Morris. She is a sophomore at Gallia Academy High School, Gallipolis, Ohio, where she is an honor student, sings in the school choir, and is on the volleyball and softball teams. She is active at Fellowship of Faith Baptist Church, Bidwell, Ohio.


By the following sonnet, it is evident that Rachel is an avid Mountaineer, even though she lives across the Ohio River:


The sights and sounds that make me feel at home

Good times and family always set you free

Many paths and trails there are to roam

No need to pretend I can just be me

Mountaineer football games are always fun

Folks are nice and ready to give a hand

The mountains reach towards the sky and sun

Where most of the resources come from land

Most people put them down but they don’t know

What life has been for people in this state

If you give them a chance they’ll let it show

The people the land the times here are great

Sitting by the fire or catching toads

I will never forget country roads


Rachel is the daughter of Bill Morris (CCHS Class of 1977) and Kendi Barr Morris of Bidwell. Her brother is Will Morris, who works for Creston Oil Corp. during the summer and will attend Rio Grande College in the fall.
