Boilermaker Announces Violet Morris Memorial Scholarship

May. 2, 2011


Utica N.Y. (May 2nd 2011)-The Boilermaker Road Race is pleased to announce the inclusion of the Violet Morris Memorial Scholarship to its annual awards.
This $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to a local high school senior who is planning on or currently attending a local college to include Utica College, MVCC, Hamilton College, SUNY-IT or HCCC.
While an important focus is the individual as a runner, the intent is to reward the efforts of a person who struggled or struggles against adversity to achieve a goal.
'Violet was an individual who realized both the importance of education and the importance of self sacrifice 'said her husband Bob Morris. 'This is her gift to the youth in our community'. 
Application forms and criteria may be downloaded at boilermaker.com. Completed applications should be faxed back to the Boilermaker office no later than Friday June 3rd. The fax number is 734-9281. General questions about the scholarship can be referred to the Boilermaker offices at 797-5838 during normal business hours.
Formal recognition of the winner will take place at the last Boilermaker Committee Meeting on June 15th at ECR International Inc..
