LA VERNIA -- When considering her future after high school, La Vernia senior Morgan Mills was a bit more focused on attending school than continuing her volleyball career. But after speaking with Lady Bear Head Coach Theresa Reyes about the possibility of playing for Hardin-Simmons University, she realized how much she wanted to stay on the court, and was thrilled when Hardin-Simmons said “yes.”

Mills has a connection to the school by way of her brother, Nolan, who currently attends Hardin-Simmons and plays on the football team. She and Nolan are close, and she is excited about living with her big brother once again. She is also excited about getting to know her new teammates, saying they all seemed “really nice and cool.”

Once she gets to Abilene, Mills knows she will be busy with volleyball and school, but is looking forward to each with a great deal of excitement. She said she plans to study education, and wants to be a math teacher and coach one day.

Leaving home won’t be easy for Mills, as she leaves one brother behind to join another.

“I’m really gonna miss my little brother Kolban,” she said. “He is always with me.”

Mills said she will also miss her parents a great deal, and is thankful for all the support they have given her over the years.

When asked about goals for next season, Mills admitted she hadn’t really given it much thought, but did say she wants to remain dedicated to her education, and wants to maintain a high GPA.

Mills will continue to play at the setter position, and is excited about the new level of competition she will experience.

“I’m really excited. Everyone really cares about it, and isn’t just playing to be playing,” she said. “Still, it’s a bit intimidating; kind of scary.”

When she isn’t playing volleyball or focusing on her academics, Mills said she also likes playing golf. She said her whole family plays, and she hopes she will be able to find the time, even up at school.

Mills will leave a big void in La Vernia once she graduates, and while Reyes is sad to see her go, she is excited and happy for the opportunity waiting at Hardin-Simmons. She had many kind words to offer about Mills.

“This young lady showed tremendous improvement throughout her years playing for me,” Reyes said. “This last year she really settled in and made a great quarterback for our team -- not that she didn’t before, but she ran with it this year.

“I am so proud of Morgan and I know she will be successful in whatever she decides to do,” Reyes added. “I want to wish her the best of luck and let her know she will always be a part of our Lady Bear volleyball family. I am so honored to have been a part of her life.”
