REMEMBERING Sister Lola Morris
The Lighthouse Family was saddened this week at the passing of a long time faithful former WECC Air Minister, Sister Lola Morris. Lola was known over the radio airwaves every Sunday Morning in Camden County for nearly 30 years!

Her ministry in Gospel radio began in Jacksonville in the early 1980’s, but in June 1983, when WLKC-FM, “KC93” signed on as the first radio station in Camden, Sister Lola was there to present her program of encouragement and Gospel music on the very first Sunday morning broadcast.

When WLKC was sold and moved its operation to Jacksonville in 1990, Lola continued on the air locally on our 2000-watt daytime Christian radio station WECC AM 1190, often calling it the little station with the Almighty Power!

In 2002 when WECC signed on 24 hours/day with 30,000 watts on FM 89.3, Lola continued her program as “The Sunday Morning Gospel Hostess”, until her retirement in 2013.

Lola was also respected (and sometimes feared, with, “it’s my way or the hallway”)  by countless teens as a long-time daily substitute teacher at Camden County High School!

She was a Christian radio pioneer, a dear friend, and much loved by her radio family, touching and encouraging thousands of listeners over the air during several decades of service.

Lola will be dearly missed, and our prayers are with the family and many loved ones of our Sunday Morning Gospel Hostess, Sister Lola Mae Morris.
