Fairman Cowan Municipal Leadership Award Presented to Morgans

Thursday, December 13, 2018

 

Philip Morgan

The Worcester Regional Research Bureau announced it awarded Philip and Gale Morgan its Fairman Cowan Municipal Leadership Award.

“Titans of Worcester industry, the Morgan Family name connotes five generations of civic and corporate leadership. Exemplars of that involvement, Flip and Gale, like the wire rods carefully crafted by Morgan Construction Company for more than a century, linked and held firm countless aspects of the region’s business, higher education, and cultural communities. Their involvement and insight led many a Worcester organization to new heights. To us most importantly, their personal commitment to The Research Bureau through friendship, leadership, and generosity has been without match,” said Research Bureau Chair Abraham Haddad.

The Morgans received the award at the Research Bureau’s 33rd annual Meeting on December 11 at the DCU Center.

About the Morgans

Flip and Gale Morgan lived on Wheeler Avenue in Worcester.

Active for decades in Worcester’s civic and corporate communities, the city and its residents have benefitted mightily from their friendship and involvement.

Flip was the fifth generation of eldest sons to lead Morgan Construction Company, from 1986 until his retirement in 2010.

He has served on such boards as Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Massachusetts Biomedical Initiatives, Worcester Art Museum, Worcester Business Development Corporation, Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, and Fay School. He has been a member of the Young Presidents’ Organization, Worcester Fire Society, First Wednesday Group, The Boynton Angels, and American Antiquarian Society.

Flip was a founder of the Worcester Regional Research Bureau and served for 25 years on the organization’s Executive Committee, including two terms as Chairman of the Board. Gale, too, has been an active member of the local community, serving on the boards of Planned Parenthood of Massachusetts and the Youth Guidance Center.

She was a committed member of the board of the Worcester County Horticultural Society for 24 years, including during the acquisition of Tower Hill Botanical Garden, often serving as Vice President.

While Flip and Gale have received numerous accolades over the years, it was the honor of The Research Bureau to present them with the Fairman C. Cowan Municipal Leadership Award.

The Award

Fairman Cowan, General Counsel at Norton Company and Of Counsel at Bowditch & Dewey, was one of The Research Bureau’s founders and a role model for engaged citizenship.

The Bureau established the Fairman C. Cowan Municipal Leadership Award to recognize those who, like Fairman, committed their time and intellect to improving Worcester.
