MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Leadership Rutherford has named the owner of Tri-Star Title and Escrow LLC as the 2013 recipient of the Pinnacle Award.
The award is given to someone who has demonstrated significant leadership throughout his career.
Sheri Morgan, who is the former president of Leadership Rutherford, has owned Tri-Star since 2005. She manages six employees who work together daily to develop business relationships in the real estate industry. In 2013, her company closed 1,591 transactions.
“She is very deserving of this award,” said Stephanie Brackman, director of Leadership Rutherford. “She is an individual so passionate about leadership and her community, and gives of herself tirelessly. Sheri (Morgan) does whatever she can to bring joy and create better lives for those around her.”
Morgan worked at Service Escrow and Title prior to owning her own business, and before then, served as branch manager for both American General and CitiFinancial. She currently serves on the board of directors for Special Kids Inc. and as the treasurer of the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce.
She is an active volunteer for Holiday Fest, Main Street, Special Kids, First Shot Basketball, American Heart Association, Middle Tennessee Association of Realtors, Greater Nashville Association of Realtors, Homebuilders of Middle Tennessee, Rutherford County Homebuilders and DreamCatchers Therapy.
“I was always very shy and bashful growing up, and stayed to myself,” Morgan said. “All of this changed when I attended Leadership Rutherford with the Chamber of Commerce several years ago. I became a different person, opening up and speaking in public. This changed my personality and gave me self-esteem. Leadership Rutherford was the best thing I ever did for myself.”
Morgan will be honored at the annual Business at its Best event on Friday, Feb. 7, at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center in Murfreesboro.
Reservations are $70 for chamber members and $90 for non-members. To reserve a seat, please contact the Chamber at 615-893-6556 or visit www.rutherfordchamber.org.
