“While I'm not comfortable being in the spotlight, I am thankful for the opportunity to redirect it to the needs of the underserved, and to remind others that we can all do our part to help,” Morrison added.
The First Lady’s Rhododendron Award recognizes individuals in West Virginia who have demonstrated goodness and worked for the betterment of their communities. In particular, this award seeks to recognize the “unsung heroes” throughout West Virginia, whose work has made a significant difference in the lives of others.
“You have, no doubt, inspired many to work along with you, and your generosity of time and spirit have given others the opportunity to work as well,” First Lady Justice continued. “We thank you for all you've done. I'm thrilled to honor you today, Missy. You're very deserving of this award.”
