Sen. Robert Morgan, friend of NCCF, dies July 16

Our thoughts go out to our colleague Mary Morgan and the entire family of former U.S. Sen. Robert Morgan, who died Saturday, July 16.

Sen. Morgan was a leader of national stature, yet never forgot his North Carolina roots and Harnett County home, where he served on the Harnett County Community Foundation and was instrumental in helping to establish many important endowments held by NCCF.

Memorial services will be held Thursday, July 21, at 2 p.m. in Butler Chapel at Campbell University in Buies Creek.
