Celebration of Life to be held for Jean Anderson Morgan

A celebration of life will be held to honor the life of Jean Anderson Morgan. The celebration will be held at East Georgia State College’s Luck F. Gambrell Center Auditorium located at 131 College Circle in Swainsboro. It will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, August 3. Lunch will be served in the rotunda and the library.

   Morgan moved to Swainsboro after marrying her husband, Jimmy Morgan. The couple lived in Swainsboro for over 40 years. Their home is now part of East Georgia State College and is used by students, faculty and administrators for social gatherings and school events.

   Morgan had a gift of leadership. She pursued a life-long commitment to education, the arts, civic and community service. She was always generously giving her time to help others. She regularly volunteered at the Emanuel County Food Pantry, and she served on the boards of Brewton Parker College and East Georgia State College.

   East Georgia State College was especially important to Morgan. She was involved with its growth, and she was chosen as the first chair of the East Georgia State College Foundation in 1974. With her help, the college was able to build the Jean Anderson Morgan Student Activities Center, known as the JAM.

   Morgan also established and funded The Vision Series, a series that gives the college the opportunity to bring musical events, speakers and authors to campus. This program not only benefits East Georgia State College, but the community as a whole, as the events are always free and open to the public.

   Morgan was a board member of the Mill Creek Foundation in Swainsboro which helps citizens in the community. Her commitment to Swainsboro and its civic community activities lasted for four decades. She gave freely of her time and resources with the intention of making Swainsboro a better place to live for all.

   Please help EGSC celebrate the life of this wonderful woman!
