Judge Joe Morrison's family is inviting applications for a bursary in his honour. For the last five years, the bursary has helped post-secondary students pursue their education.
Last year's winner was Quinn Meawasige of Serpent River First Nation, who used the $1,500 bursary to study community development in the Soo.
In 2015, Paige Restoule of Dokis First Nation was enrolled in the Masters of Environmental Studies program at Nipissing University, where her thesis focused on the importance of medicinal plants and land-based activities for aboriginal youth. Julian Jordan of Kenora was also a winner two years ago. A graduate of the Canadian Armed Forces Bold Eagle Program, he enrolled in the aboriginal finance and economic planning diploma program at Oshki-Pimachi-Owin in Thunder Bay.
The justice of the peace -- who was also a traditional elder -- passed away in 2012.
