Kennesaw State's concert hall named for Audrey and Jack Morgan


KENNESAW, Ga.— Kennesaw State University honored the most recent gift by benefactor Bobbie…

Georgia (Apr 24, 2012)

“Dr. Bailey and the Morgans are among the most generous people I know,” said Joseph Meeks, dean of the College of the Arts.  “Not only have they been angels to the School of Music, but their philanthropy extends into so many areas of the community, including healthcare, education and sports.  We are deeply honored by their ongoing friendship.”
Bailey, an avid supporter of the arts, has established music scholarships to benefit aspiring artists at Kennesaw State University.  Through her gift of 27 Steinway pianos, the KSU School of Music became an All Steinway School in Fall 2007. The softball complex at KSU is also named to honor her philanthropy at Kennesaw State.
The Morgans are also longtime supporters of the School of Music.  Before Mr. Morgan’s death in December 2011, they created the largest scholarship endowment fund for KSU music students.  Within the last month, Mrs. Morgan doubled that fund which will allow even more students to benefit from it each year.
