Roger W. Morrison Scholarship

Colleagues of Dr. Roger W. Morrison established this scholarship fund in 1998 as a tribute to the constant support, encouragement, and leadership that Dr. Morrison offered to his fellow physicians.

The purpose of the Roger W. Morrison Scholarship Fund is to assist the employees, spouses of employees, and children of employees of Pathologist Medical Laboratory and Mission Hospitals Laboratories with the rising costs of higher education.

If there are no qualified candidates for the scholarship according to the stated criteria, the funds will then be available through the existing Rotary Club of Asheville scholarship program, with a preference for an Asheville High School graduating senior.
