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. ■ —By Patrick Morgan ( unbiased son)
