The late Carl Morris was a man who believed in his community and in education. To honor his dedication to both, his family has established the Carl R. Morris Memorial Scholarship.
Carl Morris was born and reared in Calhoun County and graduated from West Virginia University with a Bachelor of Science degree in geology and a minor in mathematics. A World War II veteran, he worked in the oil and gas industry, owned the Calhoun Chronicle, and was the first real estate broker in Calhoun County. Morris and his wife, Helen, were the parents of seven children and 16 grandchildren. Mrs. Morris continues to enjoy spending time with her family as they attempt to honor Carl.
The Robert H. Mollohan Family Charitable Foundation, Inc. and the family of Carl Morris are pleased to offer the Carl R. Morris Memorial Scholarship to support the perpetuation of the values that West Virginia gave to Carl and that he returned unsullied, values that he lived by and died by, to keep and pass on to future generations.
