My name is Rich Evarts, and I am the media specialist at Morrow Elementary School. This is my eighth year at Morrow, and it is truly a wonderful place to work. The students at Morrow are extraordinary. I have been with Clayton County Public Schools for 24 years, and 20 of those have been in the media department. Please stop by the media center, and introduce yourself. I would love to meet you.
