Robert L. and Clarice J. Morris Fund

 Robert was born in Gibson Township, the son of the late Emory and Leona Gross Morris. He graduated from Salem High School in 1933. Clarice was born in Pierce Township, the daughter of the late Emerson and Maude Wilson Martin. She graduated from Pekin High School in 1935. Robert and Clarice were married in 1941. Clarice passed away in November, 2002. Bob passed away in 2008.

Robert worked several jobs after high school and served in the military for four years. Fifteen years after his high school graduation, Robert went to college and earned a bachelor’s degree in industrial arts and later a master’s degree in vocational education from Indiana State University at Terre Haute. He taught at Jeffersonville High School for 28 years and retired in 1979.

Clarice also attended Indiana State University. She held local teaching positions as well as teaching in Terre Haute (while Robert attended college), New Albany and then finally transferring to Jeffersonville, where she taught until her retirement in 1979.

Robert and Clarice gave the Washington County Community Foundation its first “planned gift” in 1995, a Charitable Remainder Trust, which was funded by the sale of three pieces of property. Hence, the Morris Society is named after them.
