LAKE TRAVIS GIRLS BASKETBALL BOOSTER CLUB
MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP AWARD
Presented in memory of
One $500 scholarship will be awarded each year to a girls varsity basketball player who has achieved a high level of success on the basketball court, in the classroom, and in her community. Iain and Alison Morris will increase the amount of the award to one $1000 scholarship, by personally donating an additional $500 each year. The scholarship is awarded to the recipient for their continued education at an institution of higher learning. The scholarship is awarded in memory of Annick Morris — a dedicated student and athlete at Lake Travis High School from 2009-2013.
Annick Morris was a 2013 graduate of Lake Travis High School, where in addition to her studies, she played Lady Cavs Basketball for all 4 years of high school. Her senior year, Annick was awarded 1st Team All District, Defensive Player of the Year, and Lady Cav of the Year. She was a student at The University of Texas at San Antonio studying Computer Science. Annick was an enthusiastic member of the Gamma Phi Beta Sorority. Annick is survived by her parents, Alison and Iain Morris, and her big brother, Scott. No one had more enthusiasm or enjoyment for life than Annick.
The beginning of each basketball season, the coaching staff will show the video produced by Iain Morris for the 2012-2013 season. This will describe the character qualities exemplified by Annick and her Lady Cavs teammates.
Lake Travis Lady Cavs varsity athletes and/or graduating seniors will be considered for the scholarship. Applicants will submit a one page essay to the coaching staff describing a life lesson they learned from their involvement in the Lady Cavs Basketball program.
Selection will be made by the coaching staff based on the six character traits, that not only Annick exemplified, but that are the hallmark of the Lady Cavs basketball program. These traits are: determination, dedication, commitment, resoluteness, resilience, and courageousness. In addition, the coaching staff will consider those applicants who demonstrate a commitment to high academic ideals and involvement in community service.
The recipient will be announced at the end of season basketball banquet.
In 2016, the Lake Travis Girls Basketball Booster Club was awarded an initial donation from Annick Morris’ friends and family, in the amount of $3650, to start the fund. The Lady Cavs basketball team shall fundraise each year to contribute to the fund. A minimum of $250 shall be designated by the Booster Club at the end of each basketball season toward the continued funding of this Fighting Heart Memorial Scholarship; thus creating a perpetual scholarship. This designated money cannot be used toward anything other than the Annick Morris Fighting Heart Scholarship. Iain and Alison Morris will personally donate an additional $500 each year.
