Morgan Eudy

Morgan Eudy, Class of 2022, has been selected as the first William F. Morris, DO Scholarship Recipient.

Dr. Morris was the beloved founding Chair of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine at Campbell University Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine who lost his battle to cancer shortly after retiring in 2015.  Faculty, staff, friends and the Class of 2017 endowed the scholarship in his memory to recognize students who demonstrate academic excellence in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM), serve as an OMM TA, and/or demonstrate a willingness and ability to serve others.

Student Doctor Eudy is from Monroe, NC and earned a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.  He served as a 2019-2020 OMM TA, Treasurer for the Campbell University Community Care Clinic, and President of the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Club in 2019.
“Having known Dr. Morris and Student Doctor Eudy, I would say that Student Doctor Eudy embodies the caring and dedication that characterized Dr. Morris’ approach to patient care and education,” said Dr. Tom Motyka, current chair of OMM. “Dr. Morris was very skilled and always ready to help. No matter how inconvenient the time, he would always attend to someone in need, and I believe that Student Doctor Eudy is on track to uphold the high standard set by Dr. Morris.”

“Being selected for the William F. Morris Scholarship is a huge honor, and I am very thankful for the financial support that this brings,” said Eudy.  “Osteopathic manipulative medicine was one of the major reasons I applied to osteopathic medical schools and is an element of medical treatment I hope to one day incorporate into my patient care. Having the training and tools to treat the whole patient in a holistic manner was extremely important to me when I was applying to medical school and is what sets apart the osteopathic profession in my mind.”
