The Adam Morgan Foundation is based in St. Charles and provides resources to families raising children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Their mission seeks to create inclusive opportunities, and the foundation has served more than 1,000 families in St. Charles and St. Louis combined.
Keye was selected for this honor following his work with the Morgan family as Adam considered his college prospects. "I met Jeremy a couple of years ago when I was looking at colleges to attend. He was very welcoming and professional,” Adam shared. “Lindenwood was in my top two, and Jeremy's belief in me was what made Lindenwood a top contender. He understands and accepts all types of learners.” Adam presented the award to Keye at a ceremony on-campus in September.
Dr. Rachel Morgan, founder and executive director of the Adam Morgan Foundation, and mother to Adam, joined the presentation. "As a Lindenwood alum, I was very excited to be able to present the Higher Education Mentor Award to Jeremy Keye,” Dr. Morgan shared. “His passion and dedication to the students he supports shows through each and every day. Jeremy not only understands what it takes to make sure each student is getting the education he or she deserves but he strives for true inclusion for those that learn and communicate differently."
Keye’s work at Lindenwood provides support and resources to all students, seeking to support the learning needs of students and provide resources for success. Keye shared, “It is an honor to receive the Higher Education Mentor Award from the Adam Morgan Foundation. In my opinion, being a mentor to students go beyond just the classroom. My goal is to help the students build confidence to not limit themselves for what people perceive them to be, but instead assist them in embracing challenges and to learn to maximize their potential.”
