Michael and Morgan Hart Make Generous Gift to SWOSU Football

Southwestern Oklahoma State University (SWOSU) with locations in Weatherford, Sayre and Yukon has announced a major charitable gift commitment to the SWOSU football program.

The generous gift has been made by Michael Hart (SWOSU Class of 2006) and his wife, Morgan Hart.

Michael graduated from Putnam City West High School and played football at SWOSU. Michael lettered in football at SWOSU every year; he led the Bulldogs in NCAA career tackles until 2017 and was team captain during his senior year. Following graduation from SWOSU, Michael worked for American Fidelity in Arkansas, Colorado and Michigan before returning to Oklahoma to lead the company’s brokerage division. In June 2020, Michael joined Dillingham Benefits as an employee benefits consultant.

He currently serves as a trustee of the SWOSU Foundation, Inc. where he chairs the Investment Committee. He also sits on the governing board of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and is president-elect of the SWOSU Athletic Association.

Morgan Hart is a native of Pauls Valley and completed her undergraduate work at Oklahoma State University in 2008. Morgan has been employed as marketing director for Foundation Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City and led marketing efforts for Oklahoma City’s One Million Pounds campaign under then-Mayor Mick Cornett. Morgan has also worked as a realtor for the largest real estate brokerage in southeast Michigan.

The Harts are members of the SWOSU Tomorrows planned giving society.  They are proud parents of a daughter, Becklynn, and a son, Walker.  The family resides in Edmond.

“We are so very grateful to the Harts and their incredibly generous ongoing support of SWOSU football,” SWOSU Head Football Coach Josh Kirkland said. “Michael and Morgan have demonstrated time and again their belief in the positive impact of college athletic programs on our SWOSU students.”
