Greetings to the Mighty, Mighty, Mighty Wildcat Family!

I, Dr. Derek J. Morgan, have been serving as the MLK Career & Technology Complex Director since January 11, 2016. Before I became the Director at MLK, I was the Assistant Principal at Wilkinson County High School.  I have worked in public education for the past 20 years.  I am passionate about preparing students to enter the global workforce through the integration of technology, real-world applications, and rigorous instruction.  Additonally, I am very interested in 21st century learning skills, as a means to turn around the current education system and start to address the world our students will graduate into, rather than the world we know from our past.  Here at MLK Career & Technology Complex we believe in equity for all students, assertive discipline, parental accountability, community building for the values in education and transparency, and communication so, that the community knows what is happening in the schools.
