Morgan's death leaves void on Calhoun County board

By Chickasaw Journal

VARDAMAN – The sudden death of Howard Morgan over the Christmas holidays has left a position vacant on the Calhoun County Board of Supervisors but the board is expected to fill the position in the timely fashion.

Morgan was a 27-year veteran supervisor for District 3, which included Vardaman and had planned to run for re-election this fall.

Morgan died suddenly on Christmas Eve following a family gathering in Vardaman and was pronounced dead at Trace Regional Hospital in Houston.
