Shipbuilders Strong | The Morse High School Class of 2020 For Real.
“Being safe and loving your family” is the most positive thing Deja has learned during this Covid-spring. “Keeping everyone apart, but also closer together,” is what this time in history has meant to her. Being a long time athlete and team member, Deja is no stranger to working together for a common goal. She is Morse High's first female State Champion in a Maine State sanctioned Wrestling Championship. She knows about hard work and the value of team. She is also a member of the school Softball team.
She was most looking forward to her final softball season this spring when everything got canceled mid-March. About being a Shipbuilder, Deja will miss the school spirit at games most of all. Being at 826 High Street and having fun at school was a large part of her experience at Morse High School.
She will head onward to SMCC in the Fall but leaves some advice for underclassmen. “Enjoy every moment.”
I could not agree more, Deja! I have admired your tenaciousness and grit from the sidelines these many years at Morse. You have left a lasting legacy with your smile, and your accomplishments on and off the mat. Congratulations on your successes, and on your future. Thank you for letting me share your story.
Here's To You, Deja.
