I attend Iowa State University and my major is Civil/Environmental Engineering. I will be a sophomore in the fall. My freshman year has been challenging and rewarding, as I was named to the Dean’s List for the College of Engineering. Receiving the James B. Morris Scholarship has allowed me to spend more time on my studies and less time trying to work odd jobs to pay for school. Iowa State University matched the James B. Morris Scholarship so that was an added bonus for me. I may not have been able to make the Dean’s List without the scholarship aid, so I truly appreciate the support of the James B. Morris Scholarship and Foundation!
Sincerely, Leah Thornquist
