Entrepreneurial Spirit

Morgan Cline was first and foremost, an entrepreneur. From the advertising firm he created from the ground up, to his work in Appanoose County supporting local start-ups, he loved nothing more than crafting a vision for the future and making it a reality.

High Achievement

Morgan expected top-of-the-line performance from himself and his employees. We continue that tradition with our board, business entities, staff, volunteers, and partner organizations.


Morgan credited his upbringing with instilling in him a strong moral compass and the value of hard work. Honesty, forthrightness, and oversight are key to our work in the community.


Morgan never forgot his humble beginnings. We continue his legacy of compassion and consideration for others.

Investment in Renewal

Morgan was passionate about restoring and maintaining historic buildings, transforming them into beautiful and productive spaces for today. He put his wealth, time, and energy into renewal, and so do we.
