The Currituck County Board of Commissioners announced the appointment of Megan E. Morgan as county attorney during the board meeting on Monday, July 18, 2022. Morgan’s first day of work with Currituck County will be August 1, 2022.
Morgan is a native of Currituck County. Prior to joining county staff, she spent five years working at Twiford Law Firm. Her primary areas of practice included local government law, as Twiford represented Camden County Government. She also practiced estate planning, estate administration, civil litigation, business law, social security disability, and administrative law.
“Serving as Currituck County’s attorney is truly a dream come true,” Morgan said. “Currituck has and always will be home for me. I am honored and excited to fill this role and will always take my ethical responsibility to Currituck County very seriously.”
Morgan graduated summa cum laude from East Carolina University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration. She graduated from Campbell Law School in 2014.
Morgan will take over the attorney’s duties from Ike McRee, who has been serving in a dual role of county manager and attorney since Aug. 28, 2021. McRee has been Currituck’s attorney since 2008 and was appointed interim manager after the departure of Ben Stikeleather. Commissioners named McRee as the permanent county manager on Feb. 7, 2022, prompting the search for a new attorney.
