Todd Graham

High School Graduation is fast approaching. We are pleased to announce that the guest speaker for the 2019 High School Graduation Ceremony on Friday, May 24th at 7:30 p.m. located on the Lawson Stadium field will be Todd Graham.

Mr. Graham was the head football coach for Arizona State University from 2011 to 2017 and compiled an overall record of 46-31. His 2013 and 2014 seasons were his most successful with 10 back-to-back season wins and won the PAC-12 South Title in 2013. He coached his teams through five bowl games during his tenure:

2012 – Fight Hunger Bowl
2013 – Holiday Bowl
2014 – Sun Bowl
2015 – Cactus Bowl
2017 – Sun Bowl

He is married to Penni Graham and they have two children; Michael and Natalie Graham. We look forward to hosting Mr. Graham and his family while they are here in Morenci and hope they enjoy being a Morenci Wildcat for a day.

Morenci Unified School District is the largest school district in Greenlee County. We are located in Morenci, Arizona, a small rural mining community positioned 40 miles from New Mexico and 40 miles from Safford, Arizona.

Our goal is to help all students succeed at each grade level and graduate from high school well prepared for the next level of their educational journey. Our staff is dedicated to making our schools an exceptional place to learn. We believe we can ensure this by building supportive, positive relationships in a culture of academic excellence.

All of us – including cafeteria workers, custodians, maintenance workers, instructional aides, computer technicians, teachers, administrators, office personnel and other staff are a team focused on supporting the continued academic and personal growth of each student.

We Mine the Future
