"We wanted other veterans to have an opportunity to get some advanced education."
—Ted Storck ’54
Ted Storck '54 is, in a word, passionate. A respected veteran, an involved alumnus, and a loyal friend, Storck has long supported Morris. The former president of the West Central School of Agriculture Alumni Association Board of Directors, founder of the Theodore S. Storck Scholarship in Memory of Anthony and Thelma Storck, and present commander of VFW Post 5039 took his demonstrated commitment to the campus and community one step further when he rallied his fellow members to create the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5039 of Morris Scholarship, which is designated for area military students and family members. "We wanted other veterans to have an opportunity to get some advanced education," he says. "No one does more for veterans" than the VFW, and few have done more for Morris than Storck.
