ARBA is proud and pleased to announce the third annual Morris Culver Memorial Scholarship. Morris passed on January 11, 2007, but not before a lifetime of achievement and service that touched all who knew him.  Morris was a pioneer in the American Romney Breeders Association. He registered the very first natural colored Romney in the United States in 1972. He was a twelve year president of ARBA and very active in judging both sheep and wool.

When Morris was a youngster he was a member of 4-H and FFA, which led him to a lifetime devoted to education. Along with his career in elementary education he also taught small flock management classes at a community college in Eugene, Oregon. Morris studied the properties of wool along with genetics and wool quality. He held workshops on spinning and dying wool, and how to select fine fleeces. Educational displays were always a part of his sheep exhibit at county fairs, whether it was a selection of colored roving or a sheep half shorn to help the public see the amount of wool on an animal.

We urge all eligible ARBA juniors to take advantage of this opportunity. The rules and application can be downloaded here (.pdf). The application deadline is July 22, 2011. Please remember that the Morris Culver Memorial Scholarship Fund needs the help of all active ARBA members to assist in honoring his memory. Please send your donations to the ARBA office with a note specifying the purpose. Thank you!
