Introducing our 2019 Board of Directors: Phillip Morgan 1st May 2019 From being a scholarship recipient to serving as a committee and board member, Phillip Morgan has experienced many facets of the Rush County Community Foundation. Having served as board president in the past, he is a supporter of all things Rush County, where he now raises his family. His experience relative to the law and involvement in the community make him an asset to the board. Read more about Phillip below: Did you grow up in Rush County? Where did you go to school? I grew up near Milroy on my family’s farm. I went to Milroy Elementary, RCHS, Purdue for my undergraduate degree, and IU for Law School. What are your hobbies and interests? Traveling and camping in our renovated Airstream RV. Do you work with any other community organizations? I also work with Rush AIC Recovery Housing What do you like most about your community? I love our small, close-knit community. I like how everyone comes together in times of need. I also love seeing the transformation our community has gone through in the last few years. How did you become involved with RCCF? I was a recipient of scholarships when I was attending undergrad. Growing up, my dad, Scott Morgan, was a board member. So, I learned early on about the great things the Foundation does; and after returning to Rushville after college, I was asked to be on the scholarship committee. What is something that people may not know about the foundation that you wished they did? I wish more people knew about the community grants the Foundation gives out. Our scholarship funds are what people think of when they think about RCCF, but our community grants offer so much to our community. Do you believe that the Foundation plays an important role in the community? How so? Our Foundation is a huge contributor to our community. Our grants help fund many projects to better our community. The Foundation also acts as a facilitator to other organizations in the community by bringing the different groups together to discuss their goals and provide resources and man power.
