What is your story? How did you end up in Milwaukee?Terrell Morgan

I was born and raised in 53206 on the north side of Milwaukee. When I got back from college my sister had three boys and they had no dad so I decided at that point to help my family and help raise my nephews. I also saw a need for a more diverse communications scene from the quality of advertising I saw in the market.

What keeps you in Milwaukee/What do you like best about Milwaukee?

The thing I like best about Milwaukee is the opportunity to do something worthwhile. Our city is big, yet small enough to influence our culture in major ways with effort.

Favorite spot in the city?

My favorite spot in the city is a lakefront opening off of a hiking path in Grant Park in Cudahy.

Milwaukee festival you are eager to attend each year?

Every year I always anticipate Summerfest. I think it is a true definition of our city and it shows the diversity on a large platform.

What drew you to Echelon?

What drew me to Echelon was the research I had done on The Salvation Army. I love the mission and programming. I was surprised to learn how much we do!

Share with us a memorable experience you have had thus far with the organization.

I have to say the most memorable moment with Echelon was Slide the City. It was soooooooo much fun. The best part was getting closer to Echelon leadership and feeling like a kid again.

What struggles do you see our city dealing with? What can our generation do to help?

The struggles our city deals with are extreme gaps of education, multicultural businesses, poverty and segregation. I think our generation feels responsible for the past. We are educated and loving enough to truly work together to change the city. The diversity of minds and talent within Echelon is enough to kickstart a major movement. We can network and bridge the gaps of disparity. There is so much opportunity to build in Milwaukee and Echelon Milwaukee is and will be a force in the future greatness of our city.
