Family of young hero starts Samuel Razi Morris Memorial Scholarship Fund

Samuel Razi Morris

The Winston School in Del Mar recently announced that Samuel Razi Morris’ family has established a memorial scholarship fund in honor of their son who died last month trying to save his 92-year-old grandmother from a house fire.  The 2007 Winston School graduate, died tragically but heroically after saving his 89-year-old grandfather and failing to come out again after re-entering to save his grandmother.

The family established the Sam Razi Morris Memorial Scholarship for low-income students with learning differences so they would also have the opportunity to attend The Winston School. His family said he loved Winston and they believe his high school experience changed his life for the better.

Morris attended Winston for four years and graduated in 2007.  According to headmaster Mike Peterson, he overcame many challenges to become a good student, a two-sport varsity athlete and a winner of a Winston School
“W” in his senior year.

Peterson is asking for support for the scholarship fund.  “I especially urge those members of the class of 2007 and the surrounding years to remember their fellow Winston graduate. The scholarship is a way for us to recognize Sam every year and be reminded of his goodness.  It is also a good way to transmit hope to others who struggle similarly with learning differences and keep Sam’s spirit alive in a school dear to his heart.”

Those interested in receiving information can email mindy@thewinstonschool.com or call the school at 858-259-8155.
