Morris remembered at Buckingham School Board meeting

During its August meeting, members of the Buckingham County School Board presented a resolution memorializing the late Claude Morris Sr., who served on the school board for 28 years, to members of his family. Morris, who also served as chairman of the school board, was remembered for providing support to students, staff and the community while being an advocate for all children. The resolution noted that Morris emphasized “student respect toward self, toward others and their community.” Morris was remembered for his “great wisdom, integrity, compassion and knowledge in the field of education.” The resolution also noted Morris’ service in World War II, his membership at Concord Baptist Church and his love for “his family, farming, community and country.”  Pictured are, from left, front row, Board Chairman Thomas Hutcherson Jr.; Shirley Morris, wife of Morris; Division Superintendent Dr. Cecil Snead; Morgan and Whitney Morris, great-grandchildren; Pam Morris, daughter-in-law; Claude Morris Jr., son; Colton Morris, grandson; back row, Shirley Morris Baker, daughter; Mike Morris, son; Shannon Morris Jones, granddaughter; Brandon Morris, grandson; Leslie Morris, wife of Brandon; Lucy Morris, wife of Claude Jr.; and Tyler Morris, grandson.
