A new $15,000 fitness trail for the Catawba River Greenway in Morganton was donated by the Morrison Family, owners of Molded Fiber Glass Companies (MFG). Dean Justus, Human Resources Manager for MFG North Carolina, located in Morganton, said the management team at the Morganton plant came up with the idea as a way to support health and wellness in the community.

Joe Wilk, Senior General Manager of MFG North Carolina, proposed the idea to the Morrison Family, and the family agreed to fund the project. The Morrison Family funds various community programs at their factory locations across North America.
