OnFocus’ People of the Year 2020: Morgan Gorst

There are so many people that stood out in 2020. For our list, we wanted to highlight people that made a difference locally. Nationally (and locally) frontline workers were truly the heroes of the year, but it’s hard to narrow down exactly whom to thank! So, to start, we want to thank everyone who made 2020 a little bit easier for the rest of us, whether it be in the medical field, grocery stores, transport trucks, or nonprofits. Thank you! Now onto the specifics…

OnFocus People of the Year 2020

Morgan Gorst, Kindhearted Soul

Morgan Gorst, age 13, of Spencer, passed away surrounded by his family on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 after a courageous battle with cancer. Morgan was diagnosed with glioblastoma at the end of summer 2018. The 7th grader moved forward with treatment, supported by a community who were united under the campaign #MorganStrong. Although Morgan’s time here on earth was far too short, the impact he made on others will last forever. He always knew how to light up an entire room with his contagious smile. He was a gentle and kindhearted soul who loved and was loved by so many.
