LOS ANGELES AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- For most, the pandemic did not help in easing burdens related to money - a matter that can already cause hardships, pandemic or not. So, in a time where she was needed most, Tech. Sgt. Tia Morgan saw it as an opportunity to help others.
While in the midst of her responsibilities as the Space Systems Command Senior Enlisted Leader executive assistant, Morgan championed a program, the Financial Peace University course, designed to boost resiliency.
"It’s really important for me to pay it forward to my military family through building financial resiliency,” Morgan said. “This class has lessons for members of all backgrounds, ranks, and positions that will build a strong financial foundation and last a lifetime.”
And pay it forward, she has.
Morgan has made it a priority to give back and serve her community as she has dedicated over nine weeks to better the financial stresses of those in her class, which is sponsored by the Los Angeles Garrison Chaplain's office.
"We could not be more thankful for her devotion and cheer to help us in our mission to support the Airmen and Guardians at Los Angeles Air Force Base," stated Chaplain Lt. Col. Donald Romero, LAG Installation Chaplain.
At the end of her course, attendees shared their many financial accomplishments and showered her with praise, expressing a job very well done. Morgan's selfless act of kindness and leadership instills in those around her that we can always support each other and ‘Pay it Forward.’
From the LA GAR Chaplain Team, congratulations on your selection for Master Sergeant, it truly is well deserved.
