“We are honored to present this State of the County once again this year,” commented the 2023 Chamber Chairman of Board Jill Duncan. “Carroll County is thriving thanks to Chairman Morgan’s leadership and that of the entire Board of Commissioners. We look forward to hearing this update about our great county.”

Michelle Morgan was elected as the first woman Chairman of Carroll County in a special election in August 2019.

She ran unopposed in 2020 and is now serving a full four-year term.

Besides continuing the volunteering for many organizations, she serves on the Carrollton Payroll Development Authority, Carrollton-Carroll County Board of Health and the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and the Three Rivers Regional Commission.

When Covid 19 hit, Governor Kemp appointed her to serve on the Governor’s County Coronavirus Task Force.

She earned her certification as a County Commissioner from the Carl Vinson Institute of Government and University of Georgia in 2015. And recently, after completing 48 hours in each area, she has earned her specialty certifications in Leadership Development, Economic & Community Development, Intergovernmental Relations and County Operations and Management.

Michelle was elected to serve on the Association of County Commissioner’s Board of Managers and represents 10 counties including Heard, Coweta and Troup. She has served on the ACCG finance committee. She has been appointed by Governor Kemp to serve on the Georgia County Leadership Academy.

In July of 2021, she was appointed to the National Association of County Commissioners Agricultural and Rural Affairs Steering Committee. This committee is responsible for all matters pertaining to USDA agriculture, rural development programs, rural renewable energy development, research and extension, food safety, and conservation programs. She will be attending NACo’s Legislative Conference in Washington, DC in February.

She has participated in the National Association of Counties High Performance Leadership Academy in collaboration with the late General Colin Powell and has earned her County Master Certificate in High Performance Leadership.

But her most important job is being Mom to her three children, Patrick (a recent graduate of the University of Georgia), Michael (a senior at the University of Georgia) and Elizabeth (a sophomore at the University of Georgia), along with her four-legged child, Apollo. Her husband, Jimmy, owns Morgan Oil Company, a 4th generation family business with locations across the West Georgia area.

Michelle originally came to Carrollton to attend the University of West Georgia, where she earned both a Bachelor and Master of Business Administration. While at UWG, Michelle fell in love with Carroll County and chose to make it her home. Shortly after graduation, she became an entrepreneur by opening A Likely Story Book Center. She had been the Human Resources Manager for Morgan Oil for the past twenty years. She was first elected in 2014 to serve as District 4 Commissioner.

She truly believes in giving back to her community. She contributes to the community in a multitude of ways through her involvement in Carroll County Mental Health Advocates, Friends of the Association of Remarkable Citizens, The Spade and Trowel Garden Club, supporting local municipal libraries, and volunteer work with the University of West Georgia. She is an active member in the Rotary Club of Carrollton and Carroll County Civic Woman’s Club.
