Morgan Stone

Hi my name is Morgan Stone and I am a former alumni of KCS. My dad, Ben Stone served as the Minister of Music and Arts at Kingwood Church for fifteen years. I started at KCS in the day care and attended through 9th grade. I played football for the Lions through middle school and even started as a defensive end for the varsity team. I graduated from UAB in 2010 with a degree in Business with a focus in Marketing and Sales.  While attending Kingwood, I developed a love of computer science that sparked my career today as a Software Engineering Manager at Influence Health. Alongside my career at Influence Health, I have taught website design and development to undergraduate students as an adjunct course instructor at UAB. In addition to this new role on the KCS board, I have served on the Kingwood Church board for a little over a year.

I met my wife, Danielle Stone, in a church small group. We later were married at Kingwood Church in 2013. In 2016 we had our first child, Harper. This fall my wife and I became the guardians to our three nieces: Kamryn, Tristyn, and Kennady.
