Faculty Member Named Fellow

Saint Xavier High School congratulates Sue Morgan, who has been named the Mike (Honorary ’81) and Barbara Stewart Distinguished Faculty Fellow in Science.

THE MIKE (HONORARY) AND BARBARA STEWART DISTINGUISHED FACULTY FELLOW IN SCIENCE

The Mike and Barbara Stewart Distinguished Faculty Fellow in Science is awarded to a faculty member who has achieved great distinction as a teacher, mentor, and leader at Saint Xavier High School. The endowed faculty fellowship supports compensation and professional development to ensure professional excellence at St. X. At a recent ceremony, Sue Morgan, a member of the St. X faculty since 1990, was named the Stewart Faculty Fellow. Morgan is the Science Department Chair and teaches Advanced Placement Physics and Calculus 3.

“The Stewart family is an example of what it means to be dedicated to education (especially in the sciences), so it is a special honor for me to be recognized with their fellowship. I am grateful to be surrounded by exceptional colleagues and students, both past and present, who have helped me grow as a teacher,” said Morgan. “Mike Stewart is an example of one of those fellow educators, and the accomplishments of Dr. Stewart remind me that teaching science is a wonderful calling.”

Mike Stewart, named an honorary alumnus in 1981, was a championship football coach and longtime St. X administrator who retired in 2011. His greatest passion was being an outstanding teacher of Science and Health, always showing great care for his students. The endowment was established in 2019 by his son, Dr. Mickey Stewart ’80, in honor of his parents’ lifelong commitment to education in general, to Saint Xavier specifically, and to Mike and Barbara’s great parenting and grandparenting skills. 

“It is with great appreciation that we establish the third faculty fellow endowment honoring former faculty member Mike Stewart and his wife, Barbara,” said St. X President Paul Colistra. “The continued investment from our alumni like Mickey Stewart allows St. X to attract premier faculty members and ensures our mission of Xaverian education for many years to come.”

Mr. Greg Cambron presented Ms. Sue Morgan with a certificate following the announcement of the her being named the school's latest Faculty Fellow.
