ARBA is proud and pleased to announce the Sixth 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 was a twelve year president of ARBA. He registered the very first natural colored Romney in the United States, in 1972. Morris was very active in judging both sheep and wool.

When Morris was a youngster he was a member of 4-H and FFA. This start 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. Click to download the rules and application (PDF). The deadline is August 31, 2014. Good Luck!

The Morris Culver Memorial Scholarship Fund needs your help to honor his memory. Please send your donations and gifts to the ARBA office. Thank you!
