I am Morgan Irvine nee Aichele. I have been a member of the CLC my entire life and attended Messiah my 6th, 7th, and part of 8th grade years. I have two children, Cainnin and Lilyonna. Both attended and graduated from Messiah and are currently attending Immanuel Lutheran. I received an Associate’s degree from CVTC in Administrative Professionalism in 2013. I am excited to be taking the full-time position as Messiah’s school secretary. I hope I can live up to everything Karen has been to the school and meant to its student. I’m so happy I am able to give back to Messiah, a place that has given me and my family so much.
