In 1983, Melvin Morgan became Lee County’s first and only black county commissioner.
Melvin has a passion to help others which she showed by becoming Lee County School District’s first black social worker.
Melvin’s portrait was unveiled on Friday, January 12th on the building at 2480 Thompson Street which was named in 2013 as the Melvin Morgan Constitutional Complex.
At this event, a couple of our Board Members showed up to support this magnificent event in honor for Melvin. In attendance was Mike Jackson, President; B.J. Brundage, Vice President; and Drummond Camel, Board Member.
