MORGAN, Utah – Students at Morgan schools helped Utah Gov. Spencer Cox celebrate his first 100 days in office.
At Morgan Elementary, students marked the occasion by lining up to show “100” on the auditorium floor.
Cox answered student questions about his dog and his favorite food. In case you wanted to know – it’s cookies.
As he looked back on the first 100 days, he said the top accomplishment was getting Utahns vaccinated against COVID-19, which lifted Utah from 30th to 8th in the nation for vaccine distribution.
Utah’s future is bright because of these students.
Huge thanks to them, the faculty and the staff at Morgan Elementary and Morgan High for such a warm welcome and for helping us celebrate our first 100 days.

The governor was equally proud over strides in education.
“When we decided to run for Governor, my wife and I, we talked a lot about why we wanted to do this, and at the core of this was education, I just firmly believe education is the best equalizer,” Cox said.
“You never get a second chance to make a first impression, and I’m proud that our team hit the ground running on Day One,” Gov. Cox said. “Our One Utah Roadmap outlines an ambitious set of goals for the first 500 days of our administration and on Day 100, we’ve made significant progress to benefit the people of Utah. And this is only the beginning,” he added.
Lt. Gov. Deidre Henderson and First Lady Abby Cox joined the governor. They attended an assembly with students from all of the Morgan schools.
