"If I can help somebody as I pass along. If I can cheer somebody, with a word or song. If I can help somebody, that is traveling wrong, then my living shall not be in vain." Juanita (Neat) Hilda Morgan, 88, native and resident of Donaldsonville, Louisiana. Juanita was born on February 2, 1931 to the union of the late Raymond Morgan and Hilda Alayasia Jones Morgan in Donaldsonville, Louisiana (McCall-Souvenir area). On Wednesday February 6, 2019, "Neat" was called home, swiftly to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Juanita was a very active member of Mt. Zion Baptist Church where she was baptized at an early age by Rev. E.J. Ellis. She served under 5 pastors, for over 84 years, in various leadership positions including: Church Treasurer, Church Clerk and Honorary Pastor's Aid Member, under her current pastor, Rev. Darryl L. Smith Jr. Neat was a 1946 graduate of Lowery Training School. She was enrolled, at the age of 15, at the Southern University and A&M College in Baton Rouge. She graduated from Southern in 1952 and received a B.S. degree in Business Education and later received a Master's Degree in 1973. Then in 1974 she added 30 graduate hours. Neat began her teaching career at McDonough #32 Elementary School in Algiers, LA. She was then employed at Southern University under the late Dr. L.L. Boykins and the late Dr. W.W. Clem in the College of Education. She then began teaching business subjects at Lowery High School in 1966 until 1969. During the Spring of 1970 she was transferred to East Ascension High School, Gonzales, LA, working in the Business Department until 1980. Ms. Morgan was appointed to the position of Assistant Principal of instruction at Donaldsonville High School in August 1980 and served until her retirement in 1995. Juanita will be remembered in many fond ways. She was a generous and Kindhearted servant, who loved God, her family, her church, her community, and her "good friends" as she would say.

Neat was a member of the following organizations: Southern University Alumni Federation - Tri Parish Chapter (life member), Ascension Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and Pride of Donaldsonville Order of Eastern Star Chapter #80.
