Catherine Flynn Morrison spent her 46-year teaching career in a small country school where many of her students came from less fortunate backgrounds. She took those children under her wing and worked tirelessly to help prepare them for a college education, especially to become school teachers like herself. To honor that legacy, a scholarship fund has been created through Your Community Foundation (YCF) that will benefit hard-working Harrison County students who want to become teachers and may need financial help to attend college.

University High student’s Little Toy Train Fund plays Santa at Christmas
December 1st, 2013
When Cassidy Seamon was in the third grade, she had a cousin who was ill and in the hospital at Christmas time. She asked her mother Doreen if Santa could take the gifts intended for her and deliver them instead to other children who had to be in the hospital over Christmas. “So my mom and I went shopping,” Cassidy said. “We bought some toys and some clothing items and we took them to Children’s Hospital on Christmas Day. I can still remember giving a teddy bear to a little girl and seeing how happy she was. It was a special experience for me.”
