From the fundholder:
The Dorothy W. and Elton K. Morris Scholarship was set up in memory of beloved parents whom were both college graduates and came from families of college graduates. Dorothy and Elton were also very passionate about their religion so naturally, furthering an education at an affiliated college or university within the Lutheran Church of Missouri Synod was of great importance to them. Dorothy had served as elementary education teacher for many years within Midland Public Schools and Elton was a research chemist for the Dow Chemical company for almost 40 years. Together they had four children whom all graduated from a college or university. Both were strong believers in hard work and education.
