Carol Morgan, founder and president of Denim Marketing, recently joined the Advisory Board of Oglethorpe University’s Q. William Hammack, Jr. School of Business (HSB). In her role, Morgan will contribute her expertise to the development, refinement and implementation of the Hammack School of Business mission of helping students become leaders who make a difference.
“As an Oglethorpe University alumnae and business major myself, I’m grateful for the opportunity to support the University’s newest endeavor in molding business leaders who will positively impact their communities through both their livelihoods and their way of living,” said Morgan.
Established in 2019, HSB builds on the University’s tradition of innovation in business education — Oglethorpe was one of the first institutions in the nation to offer business and commerce courses when it moved to its Atlanta campus 150 years ago. HSB faculty and volunteers help students unlock their creativity, curiosity, and compassion through experiential, engaging instruction built on the foundation of a liberal arts education.
A graduate of Oglethorpe, Morgan has remained active at the University, previously serving on its National Alumni Board as well as the Oglethorpe Art Museum Board. In 2008, the University awarded her the Spirit of Oglethorpe Award, which recognizes a graduate who lives by the University’s motto, “Make a life. Make a living. Make a difference.”
Founded in 1835, Oglethorpe University unites a close-knit campus community with big-city culture and opportunities. Today, Oglethorpe enrolls 1,452 students, representing 31 states and 22 countries.
Oglethorpe is known for its Core, a sequence of courses intentionally designed to challenge perceptions, evoke questions, transform perspectives, and create connections. It’s the kind of intensive intellectual exercise that could only happen in a small, supportive community like Oglethorpe. The University’s website states, “the Core is what makes our graduates sharper thinkers, better writers and stronger leaders, who excel in whatever they choose.”
In its 22-year history, Morgan has grown Denim Marketing to a be a respected agency representing home builders, developers, remodelers and many others in the home building space. The agency’s impressive roster of clients includes Traton Homes, SR Homes, Sublime Homes, Kiper Homes, S&A Homes, Foxlane Homes, TempSmart Staffing Solutions, Beacon Management Services, Cresswind Georgia at Twin Lakes, Donley Homes, Highland Homes and many others.
