A partnership of the Morris Family Foundation,
Rogue Community College and the RCC Foundation
The Morris Family Foundation was founded in 1997 by brothers LaRue and Earl Morris. Earl was a mechanic, and LaRue was an instructor at Eagle Point High School. Their goal was to benefit Jackson County youth and adults by helping them acquire job skills that would prepare them for family-wage jobs in Southern Oregon.
The Morris Family Foundation is making it easier for rural students in Jackson County to access high quality career-technical education.
