I am truly honored to be a recipient of the James B. Morris Scholarship this current school year, and in my previous years as a University of Iowa student. I’m glad to have had the opportunity to serve as an example for future generations of Iowa College students.  I want them to know that achieving success at a university or college is possible.  The James B. Morris Scholarship has allowed me to become successful in attaining my academic goals. Each scholarship has helped me to face the often-difficult barrier of not being able to afford and finance my education. I am fortunate to have had this scholarship as my financial support in the past, and am thankful for being able once more for the 2014-2015 academic year.

Sincerely, Celina Carr – Des Moines, IA
