Leadership Rutherford has named Sheri Morgan, owner of Tri Star Title & Escrow, LLC in Murfreesboro, as the 2013 recipient of the Pinnacle Award, given to someone who has demonstrated significant leadership throughout his or her career.
Morgan has owned Tri Star Title & Escrow, LLC since 2005. She manages six employees and on a daily basis, develops business relationships in the real estate industry and process and closes transactions. In 2013, her company closed 1,591 transactions.
“Sheri is very deserving of this award,” said Leadership Rutherford Director Stephanie Brackman. “She is an individual so passionate about leadership and her community, and gives of herself tirelessly. Sheri does whatever she can to bring joy and create better lives for those around her.”
Morgan worked at Tri Star prior to owning it, and before then, served as branch manager for both American General and CitiFinancial. She currently serves on the board of directors for Special Kids and the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce, where she serves as treasurer, and is past president of Leadership Rutherford.
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. She was a Rutherford County Chamber Diplomat for two years and a 2008 Leadership Rutherford graduate.
“I was always very shy and bashful growing up, and stayed to myself,” said Morgan. “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 and husband Joe live in Smyrna. They have one son, Matthew, who with wife Amanda, have a son, Ryland. She is a member of New Vision Church in Murfreesboro.
Morgan will be honored at the Chamber’s annual Business at its Best event on Friday, Feb. 7, at the Embassy Suites Murfreesboro Hotel and Conference Center.
