A Family Dedicated to Service
And if you're familiar with this invaluable nonprofit early learning center serving children and families since the 50's out of its Hill Street Baptist Church home, that won't come as a surprise. What began as a daycare facility offered through the church under her grandmother's care hasn't wavered in meeting low-income families through the years.
As they shifted to keep their doors open serving their community, Morton also managed to find time to volunteer in support of fellow nonprofits efforts on her lunch break and in the evening hours. When asked if she managed to sleep in 2020, she laughs and says, "Well, we're a family dedicated to service." And those sentiments are certainly true. Morton is the daughter of CWA's Executive Director CiCi Weston, warmly known as Mrs. CiCi around the center.
