The Cody A. Morris Memorial Scholarship was established by his grandmother Ann M. Holmes. Ann was the Assistant Dean for Finance in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences for 16 years and a UMD employee for 29 years. Cody died tragically at the age of 21 and was not able to complete his education. Cody was curious about the world around him, loved science in all its forms, and nothing pleased him more than discovering how things worked. Cody grew up on Kent Island on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. He loved his friends and the communities surrounding his hometown. It is important to Ann and Cody’s family that the scholarship money is granted to residents of the Eastern Shore counties to honor those closest to his heart. In honor of her years of service as Assistant Dean, Ann would prefer the scholarship be gifted to a student in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences.
