Dr. Morgan honored for service

For being involved and taking part in community organizations, University of La Verne President Dr. Stephen Morgan was acknowledged when he received the LeRoy Haynes Center for Children and Family Services’ 1996 Humanitarian of the Year Award.

Dr. Morgan found out that he was this year’s recipient at the luncheon where he was invited to last Spring.

“I had attended many of their luncheons, but I never thought of myself being the honoree,” said Dr. Morgan. “It is a privilege.”

One of his main involvements includes being a board member of the McKinley Children’s Center in San Dimas since 1990.

According to Dr. Morgan, the organization houses children who have been emotionally or physically abused and whose parents are unable to care for them. During their stay, the children receive the assistance necessary from the staff to rebuild their trust and a foundation for them to use for the rest of their lives.

“I am really convinced in making the community a better place to live,” said Dr. Morgan. “By joining forces we can accomplish many great things.

“It feels great to be recognized for something that I enjoy doing so much,” Dr. Morgan said.

Besides his duties as president of ULV, Dr. Morgan concentrates on taking active positions on several community programs outside of school.

Some of the positions that he holds include board and treasurer of McKinley, chair of the Mt. Baldy Region United Way Board, director of the Los Angeles Area United Way Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center and Inter-Valley Health Plan, and he is listed in two editions of the Marquis’ “Who’s Who In America.”
