Mayor David Morris of Searcy completes 40 years of public service

SEARCY, Ark. - Growing up in Searcy, Ark., Mayor David Morris witnessed firsthand the positive impact public service has on the community.  With his mother working for the University of Arkansas Corporative Extension Office for fifty-five years and a father that served in the U.S. Navy for eight years prior to becoming a postal worker retiring after forty-two years of service, he knew this was the direction his future was heading.  In addition his grandfather Harvey Morris served as Assessor for White County during the 1940’s.

Morris graduated from the University of Central Arkansas with a Bachelor of Science degree and received a Master of Health Services Management and a Masters in Business, both from Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri.
