About Tony

About Tony MorrisTony Morris has had an attraction to communication since he was a boy growing up in Enterprise, Alabama. As an early teen, he created magazines, which he sold to friends and neighbors. Later in high school, he authored a weekly column in five area newspapers, a feat, he jokingly once said, made him perhaps the youngest syndicated columnist in the State of Alabama!

Morris attended Troy University on a leadership scholarship and graduated with a Journalism degree. After college, he carved out a 25-year career in the corporate communications world where he held management positions with Fortune 500 companies like MCI Telecommunications, The Coca-Cola Company and Brown-Forman.

In his 40s, Morris tapped into communications on a higher level, seeking out his spiritual guide and discovering along the way that he had special intuitive gifts. Since that awakening, he’s explored and learned about the various realms of spirituality. More importantly, he’s committed to using his gift to help others achieve their own missions in life. In addition, he is in the process of publishing his first book, Little Red Wagon, which details his own spiritual journey.

A self-described lifelong student, Morris is a firm believer in learning and education. Each year at his high school alma mater, he awards to two deserving graduates, The Roy Shoffner Memorial Journalism Scholarship and The Seroba Bowden Marsh Honorary Teaching Scholarship, both named after people who were early mentors in his life. In addition, he serves on the Board of Directors of The Rona Barrett Foundation, which provides programs and assistance to the elderly poor. His other interests include architecture, movies, running and cultural diversity. Morris lives in Santa Barbara, California.

    I love your devotion to whatever you do. You are definitely on the road to achieving the purpose of your life. I’m very proud to know you, Tony.
    You are one of those people who came into my life to renew my energy and my life purpose. Thank you for being a supporter of the work we now do in finding solutions to affordable housing and care for seniors. This crisis will have a positive solution. Hope your friends will join us in establishing a pilot campus called “The Golden Inn & Village Fund” which can be replicated all over the country. We look forward to building the first one in the Santa Ynez Valley, California; part of the tri-counties of Santa Barbara.
    Your friend,
    Rona Barrett
