Matt Morton will be moving from Oregon to Washington when he takes over as president of the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington on April 18.

For him, it is a homecoming.

Morton grew up west of Olympia in an unincorporated area of Thurston County. From his childhood, he remembers the dense evergreen forests that were his backyard, the artesian well-water that was cherished by his community and the small public schools that he attended.
