What is it?
Who was she?
Morgan Lauren Cleaves was born on December 26, 1999 in Riverdale, GA; the second child born to Lee Morse Cleaves, Jr. and Teresa Anita Motley Cleaves. From the very beginning she was mild mannered with a kind and gentle spirit. A mentor to all that she met, and a champion for the underdog. Her life’s motto was…”it’s just not that serious”.
Morgan was adventurous and loved trying new things. She began her education as a student at the Especially for Kids Day Care, where she participated in the ballet group. Her later education included attendance at Calloway Elementary School, Mundy’s Mill Middle School, Our Lady of Mercy High School and later at Mundy’s Mill High School.
Although her activities varied, she was passionate about cheerleading; where she honed her skills as a member of Mundy’s Mill Razor Back, Elite Storm Lady Rain, The Weather Girls and recently the AUC (Atlanta Universal Cheerleading) squads. Additionally she was a member of the DECA (Distributive Educational Club of America) and served as the team manager for the Mundy’s Mill Boys Basketball team.
Morgan had a personal relationship with the Lord and began her Christian journey as an active member of Greater St. Peter’s AME Children’s Church, led by Rev. Mark Christmas and Pastor William Green (who later became her high school principal). Continuing her Christian growth at Greater St. Peters; she was further guided by Rev. Isaiah J. Waddy where she participated in the Oliver Saxby Children’s Choir, traveled with the youth ministry to Sanford, FL; site of the infamous Trayvon Martin shooting and visited churches in Jamaica; where she provided school supplies and fellowship. In addition to the traveling with the youth ministries; she was a member of the Usher Ministry, the MIME group and more importantly participated in the developmental I.J. Waddy Oratorical Contest; where she honed her public speaker skills.
Although Morgan’s life was cut short, she made an indelible impression on all that she met and to honor her memory; MLC Charities was formed. The organization is committed to providing annual scholarships and activity support to young people that exhibit that same charitable, kind characteristic.
