PAT MORROW

Pat is the President & COO of SBC Wealth Management, a Registered Investment Advisory firm. This is a firm that Pat and his business partner built from scratch starting in 1987. Along with serving on the White’s Residential & Family Services, LLC Board, Pat has also served as one of the founding board members of the Gary Dudley Memorial Scholarship Foundation. This is an organization that raises funds to grant college scholarships to the children of fallen law enforcement officers in the state of Indiana.

Personally, Pat and his wife placed their daughter in the care of Compass Rose Academy (CRA) for 10 months. Based on their family’s need for professional help and the research conducted, it became obvious that there is not enough faith based programs like this to assist families in need. The Morrow’s feel indebted to this organization based on the success their daughter experienced and what it can do for hurting families.
