Ann Taylor Morgan ’81 receives Tom Stallworth Award

Ann Taylor Morgan Presbyterian College Clinton SC Alumni Award

When she was a student, Ann Taylor Morgan ’81 helped re-establish Westminster Fellowship under Tom Stallworth’s guidance. This year, Morgan has been named the recipient of the Thomas Aurelius Stallworth ’55 Alumni Award.

“Mr. Stallworth was always a part of my PC experience,” Morgan said. “He was a very kind man who always engaged with PC students.”

The Thomas Aurelius Stallworth ’55 Alumni Award is given to an alumna or alumnus of PC who embodies the best characteristics of Stallworth’s Christian leadership, strong and bold character, integrity, moral courage and values. The recipient knows and demonstrates the true meaning of neighbor and friend.

Morgan embodied these characteristics as a PC student. She was an active member of:

  • Cardinal Key
  • Judicial Council
  • PC Choir
  • Society for the Advancement of Management
  • Student Government Association
  • Student Volunteer Services
  • Women’s Council

She also served as president of Clinton Residence Hall and on the Board of Visitors.

“Ann is a loyal friend who deeply loves PC and all of her friends and neighbors,” said Barbara Pickens Foster ’81.

Morgan has demonstrated her Christian character throughout her public and private life as well. At St. John’s United Methodist Church in Rock Hill, she has served as a Stephen Minister, choir member, Sunday school teacher, Staff-Parish Committee member, and search-committee member.

Morgan has worked for Duke Energy for 35 years in human resources, followed by her work for the city of Rock Hill as manager of risk management.

“Ann demonstrates integrity, loyalty, dependability, confidentiality and character in all she does,” Foster said.

Morgan has served as a member of the PC Board of Trustees since 2017. She recruits students to the College and regularly hosts gatherings of her friends from college.

“You hear so much about ‘the PC family,'” Morgan said. “I love PC so much because of the relationships you’re able to form.

“Some of these relationships I made in college are going strong, now into the fourth decade.”
