After earning a bachelor's degree in secondary education with a focus on science and technology from Marshall University in 2006, Morgan returned home to Mason County to teach science in the public school system. 

But two years later, he learned of an opportunity he could not pass up. 

Working for the past several years as chief technology officer for Bob's Market and Greenhouses in Mason lets Morgan combine his interests in technology and horticulture.

"Growing up on a farm, I grew up around gardening, I and I love it," Morgan said. 

"And I have this background in technology. This job was kind of a perfect combination for me," he said. 

His efforts demonstrate that.

Morgan maintains the technological infrastructure for multiple greenhouses as well as five retail locations and an extensive corporate Internet and digital presence. He produces the company's online marketing, hosts a weekly YouTube webcast and writes blog posts. 

He has added 2D codes that can be read by smart phones to plant tags so shoppers can access websites, videos and other tools to learn more, an initiative that has been recognized by GreenhouseGrower.com.

As an employee in a small company, he points out that he also wears many other hats, organizing facility tours and implementing educational outreach programs.

Morgan is active at Fairview Bible Church, managing the church's audio-visual system for weekly services and volunteering at special events and travels on mission trips around the world.

On June 9, 2014 John married Julie Connor from Huntington, WV.  Julie and John actually met about ten years ago during a class at Marshall University, but they didn't get to know each other aside from being classmates.  Then in 2013 they were reunited thanks to the Internet.  A love story fit for an IT guy!
