This past spring, Ducks Unlimited awarded 61 scholarships to graduating high school seniors from across the country. This marks the fifth year of the scholarship program, which has seen much success since its inaugural year. For 2022, the winner of the $10,000 National Scholarship is Kenneth “Jack” Morris, from Milton, Delaware.

Morris was highly involved in his DU Varsity chapter at Sussex Tech, serving as the chapter’s secretary for three years before taking over as committee chairman his senior year. Jack also served on the Delaware State Committee, devoting his time and talents to working with DU’s youth programs across the state. 

Former DU President Doug Schoenrock called Morris to deliver the good news. “It was an honor to be the first to congratulate Jack on his outstanding accomplishments,” Doug said. “This year’s class of scholarship applicants was extremely competitive. It feels really good to give back to this select group of young men and women who have represented their communities in such a positive manner.”

Congratulations to all the 2022 DU National Scholarship Recipients!
