Morgan most recently served as the Executive Director of the Museum of Culpeper History in Culpeper, VA, a non-profit organization that collects, preserves, interprets, and promotes the history of Culpeper from the Triassic Period 215 million years ago to present-day Culpeper. They work by engaging diverse audiences and educating visitors using their collections of objects and photographs in exhibits and programs to create an increased understanding of the significant historical events that occurred locally and formed the community as it is known today.
Morgan managed the team of staff and volunteers through pandemic-related restrictions and was able to capture emergency grants to help continue operations. He oversaw financial operations and helped to research, design and install meaningful exhibits as well as develop related programming.
“One of the things that unanimously drew us to Morgan is his extensive record and commitment to the history field,” said Paige Anderson, Chair of the Board of Trustees. “He knows how to create innovative programming and how to build up audiences and community engagement – the pieces that make for lasting success and will deepen the impact of the Museum as we continue to preserve the character of Park City.”
Morgan brings with him vast museum, exhibit and collections experience from being Chief Curator at Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses in New Orleans, LA and also as Curator of Collections at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester, VA.
“Morgan is a student of history,” said Randy Scott, Board Vice-Chair. “He has accomplished much in his previous roles and has experience and passion for bringing the Museum into and engaging with the community. He has visited Park City and has a real appreciation for the history that can be walked, skied, biked, and hiked through on a daily basis.”
