Receiving the James B. Morris Scholarship is an extraordinary blessing that will help ease the burden of attending college for my family and I. The aid provided by the scholarship foundation is helping me achieve my goal of using my college education to prepare me for a business career, and I couldn't be more grateful for the scholarship foundation and its donors!
