Paco Morales, piano technician in the Stephen F. Austin State University School of Music, is one of eight recipients of this year’s President’s Achievement Award

Every faculty and staff member and student in the Stephen F. Austin State University School of Music who interacts with Francisco Morales Font remarks on how friendly he always is and what a positive attitude he always has. His positive personality is infectious among the campus music community, and people can’t help feeling happier when interacting with him, students and colleagues say.

And if you ask Morales — Paco to all who know him best — why and how he keeps such a positive, friendly attitude, he’s quick to reply: “My positivity is because SFA has given me the greatest opportunity of my life, and it’s here that I feel very happy and grateful.”
