After devoting 26-years to his country, Lt. Colonel E.L. Morton will now devote his time to his hometown.
Morton has retired from the military and accepted the position of Director of the Campbell County Chamber of Commerce.
Born and raised on a farm in Demory, Morton said he is ready to contribute locally to his community.
“I’m excited. I didn’t think there would be an opportunity to contribute to my community like this,” said Morton happily.
