Rotary Club Elects New President

Tony Morris has been elected as the new Rotary Club President

An accomplished communications professional, author, and outdoors aficionado has been tapped to lead the Rotary Club of Montecito. Tony Morris assumes the two-year presidency on July 1. 

Morris is a lifetime learner whose passion to speak to people, verbally and in written form, began early. By the time he was a teenager, Morris was writing a once-a-week column that appeared in five area newspapers. And before that, the native Alabamian had been creating and selling magazines. Morris graduated from Troy University with a journalism major and headed into the world of corporate communications, eventually holding senior management positions with Fortune 500 companies including MCI Telecommunications, The Coca-Cola Company, and Brown-Forman.

Earlier this year, Morris became the executive director of The Rona Barrett Foundation, a nonprofit that provides housing and wellness services to help seniors live high quality of lives, regardless of their incomes. 

 He is also on the board of directors for the Montecito Trails Foundation, which ensures wide access to and protection of recreation areas in Montecito, Summerland, and Carpinteria. Morris also offers one-on-one psychic-medium intuitive consultations, working with people to gain clarity, direction, and a deeper spirituality. He’s in the process of writing his first book, Little Red Wagon, which details his own spiritual journey.

Outgoing president Tom Fisher will become president of the Club’s foundation, which gives donations and grants to organizations and projects that seek to improve the greater Santa Barbara area.
