Jimmy Morrison Scholarship Awarded


By WSIL Reporter

ANNA -- Anna-Jonesboro High School gave out its first Jimmy Morrison Scholarship Wednesday night.

Senior Damian Reed received the honor. The award was presented by Morrison's two children, Alaina and Joseph Morrison.

Jimmy Morrison was a star athlete at A-J in the 1980s, who went on to play minor league baseball. His life was cut short in April when he was killed by two men in Anna.

Family and friends say awarding the scholarship this quickly is a great accomplishment since the fund was only established about a month ago.
