 The Carl R. Morris scholarship was awarded to Emily Brady, who will graduate with the CCHS Class of 2010.


She has been active in scholastic, community and sports activities, including National Honor Society vice president, Mu Alpha Theta math honorary, Learn and Serve, basketball and softball, and is ranked third in a class of 98. She will attend West Virginia University in the fall and major in pharmacy.

The scholarship was presented by Jim Morris, board member of Robert H. Mollohan Charitable Foundation and representative of the Morris family.


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 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 the county.


Carl and his wife, Helen, have seven children and 16 grandchildren. The children and seven of the 16 grandchildren have either finished college or are enrolled at the present time.    



 Emily Brady receives the Carl R. Morris scholarship award from Jim Morris.


The Robert H. Mollohan Family Charitable Foundation, Inc., and the Morris family 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 each day. Values that he lived by and  died by, to keep and pass on to future generations.


Qualifications for the scholarship are: Planning to enroll or attending Alderson-Broaddus College, Glenville State College, or West Virginia University; pursuing a college degree; have a 3.0 GPA or higher; demonstrate financial need; and be a resident of Calhoun County.
