THE WILLIAM & DONNA MORGAN AWARD


Each year St John’s awards scholarships to deserving students who apply and then are chosen by the Scholarship Committee. In addition there is an annual award that has a small honorarium and gift, which is nominated by members, the Morgan Award:

The William and Donna Morgan Award

Named for William (1928-2009) and Donna (1932-2010) Morgan, long-time members of St. John’s Lutheran Church. During his career as an educator, Bill served as principal of McClatchy High School and devoted himself to the education of Sacramento’s young people. He and Donna supported the Scholarship Fund from its infancy, and Bill served as the Scholarship Committee’s chair for many years. The William and Donna Morgan Award will be presented in their memory to graduating high school seniors as chosen by the Scholarship Committee.

These awards will be:

• Presented to two of St. John’s Lutheran church’s graduating high school seniors.
• Nominated by members of St. John’s Lutheran Church and selected by members of the Scholarship Committee.
• Based on community service both within St. John’s and in the community and the individual’s commitment to St. John’s mission of Living God’s Love in the World.
• Awarded a gift (blanket, bible, etc.) and a small honorarium ($100).

If you know of an outstanding St. John's senior in high school, please submit any nominations for the 2021 Morgan Awards to Pastor Jon Haug or Chris Dawson by May 7th . Thank you!
