John and Linda are a couple whose love for
Lexington extends deep. Their love for Lexington
is rooted in historic houses and preserving the fabric
of historic downtown. They were introduced to each
other while John was filthy,  gutting and renovating
their 1797 house on North Limestone and the madness
has continued with the renovation of their sixth and
largest renovation project on East Third Street. Linda
Carroll attended Saint Peter School and has been involved
with that community ever since, sending her two sons
there, serving on numerous boards, most recently the
Buildings and Grounds Committee in charge of the new
school addition. When her sons attended Lexington Catholic
High School, Linda also began to serve that community; she
now serves on the Board of Trustees. (They are spearheading
the annual Mardi Gras fundraiser for the school this weekend.)
As a couple they are involved with everything from preserving the arts in
Lexington, supporting their two sons, Patrick and Simon, in pursuing theater and music in their college careers to Linda campaigning for Saints Peter and Paul to become the new arts school and serving on the board of Summerfest. John serves on the Actors’ Guild of Lexington Board. John is the President and Linda is the Vice-president of Morgan Worldwide Consultants, Inc. a small engineering company serving the minerals industry worldwide. Linda worked for years with the Council of State Governments and has been involved with politics ever since. John moved to the US from England about 25 years ago, and Linda is on the executive committee for the Bluegrass Trust for Historic Preservation. ■
