Scholarship America® Announces New Board Member

Jay Morris, Vice President of Education and Executive Director of the Institute for Excellence, Yale New Haven Health System

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Scholarship America ®, the nation's leading nonprofit scholarship and educational support organization, is pleased to announce that Dr. James (Jay) B. Morris has been elected to serve as a member of Scholarship America's Board of Trustees.

Dr. Morris currently serves as Vice President of Education and the Executive Director of the Institute for Excellence at Yale New Haven Health System, where he is responsible for leadership development, succession planning, organization development, e-learning, and simulation. Prior to joining the Institute for Excellence, Dr. Morris was Vice President at Trinity Health, and spent seven years as an organization development director for Merck & Company.

"As the first person in my immediate family to attend college, I had full responsibility for financing my education. With the help of generous individuals and organizations like Scholarship America, I was able to secure scholarships that allowed me to acquire my degree in sociology. It is my desire to utilize my skills and talents to do for others what was done for me.  I firmly believe that Scholarship America personifies this same conviction and I look forward to serving on this board," said Dr. Morris.

"Jay is an inspirational leader with a background that gives him incredible insight to Scholarship America's work. I am delighted that he has agreed to bring his talents to our organization, as we work to achieve our strategic goals," said Lauren A. Segal, president and CEO of Scholarship America.

In addition to receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology, Dr. Morris earned a JD from Woodrow Wilson College of Law and both his MA in Organization Development and PhD in Corporate Instructional Design from Loyola University in Chicago. He was an Affiliate Professor in the Organizational Dynamics Graduate Program at the University of Pennsylvania.

Since 1958, Scholarship America has distributed more than $2.9 billion in scholarship assistance to more than 1.9 million students, funding both entry-level and multi-year scholarships and emergency financial grants.
