Why do you support the Morton 201 Foundation?

  • My husband, John, and I are both 1985 graduates of Morton East, and we have two children currently in the University system so we know first-hand how much post-high school education costs. I felt it was important for me to give back to current students to help them achieve their college goals. I held two fundraisers and raised over $1,000, which was enough to cover one of the Pay It Forward Scholarships at Morton East. Knowing that these fundraising efforts have helped students, and their families, I feel a little relief that a portion of their costs are covered by this scholarship. It makes me feel that I have fulfilled my own personal commitment to pay it forward. Once a Mustang, always a Mustang!

  • Supporting education that develops the leaders of tomorrow is critical to the long-term success of our communities, and that’s why my colleagues and I at BMO Harris Bank are so proud to support the Morton 201 Foundation “Pay It Forward Scholarship”.
