Morley

Founder & Chief Generosity Officer

Morley began planting the seeds of generosity when his own children were growing up and now continues to do so with his many grandchildren. After an impressive start to his career in San Diego in the construction industry, Morley retired and moved to Sun Valley. In 2009 Wow-Students was born with the hopes of teaching the youth of the Wood River Valley the importance of giving back with their time, treasure and talents. Morley has sat on the Board of Directors of the St. Luke's Wood River Foundation and The Community Library. Currently Morley is President of Golden Edge Enterprises, a local construction management firm and our fearless leader at YGP.
