Morgan Huffins III
Wendy Sledd

Morgan Huffins III is living proof that big things come in small packages.

The toddler has a big heart and loves to help others, following in the footsteps of his father, an Army veteran.

As the reigning Wee Little Mister Copperas Cove Five Hills, Morgan has volunteered often in the community, supporting several veterans’ events as well as several other causes including ringing bells for the Salvation Army, raising money for autism awareness and collecting school supplies for students in need.

The tiny tot has taken on a community service project to help children just like himself by collecting tabs from aluminum cans and donating them to the Ronald McDonald House in Temple.

He has collected thousands of tabs and will donate them Feb. 10.

The youngster is described by his grandmother, Gloria Huffins, as a rambunctious, yet sweet, 3-year-old ball of energy with a knack for the spotlight.

“With the Five Hills Scholarship Pageant being his first-ever accomplishment as a toddler, he has surprised his family with his love for the camera and yearning for the tasks he is assigned as Wee Little Mister Five Hills,” Gloria Huffins said. “Along with loving the pageantry, he is also your typical 3-year-old boy with his constant need to play outside, play with his superheroes, and even watch some cool movies.”

Morgan loves to ride his four wheeler and spend all the time he can with his dad. In addition to eating his favorite cookies, he also enjoys helping his grandmother bake them.

He attends Sunshine Head Start and is the class helper, a job he takes very seriously.

With his mother being of Spanish decent, Morgan is learning the Spanish language.

Morgan loves to write his name and go on trips with his two aunts.

Morgan has a dog named Bella, who he has loved to chase around the house and play with since he was a baby.

Morgan has a great love for books. You can often find him in the library at school or at home looking at books.

Morgan has volunteered more than 100 hours since being crowned Wee Little Mister Five Hills last May. He will crown his successor March 24.
