Each year, Presbyterian Day School honors an alumnus who demonstrates a love for the school and who represents the goals, ideals, and imagination of PDS.

morganThis year, we recognize Allen Benners Morgan, Jr. ’55 as the 2014 Distinguished Alumnus.

At the age of 27, Morgan started a brokerage firm with a friend. This firm, Morgan Keegan, grew and as it did, Morgan gained respect within the financial services industry. He served as Chairman and CEO from 1969 until 2003, and he was Chairman of Morgan Keegan and Vice Chairman of Regions Financial until his retirement in 2007.

Morgan and his wife Musette have three adult children, Kendall Morgan Rhodes, Musette Morgan, and Worth Morgan ’99.
