Black Rain Ordnance is taking a moment to recognize one of our own, Adam Morris! Adam is this year’s recipient of MSSU’s Officer Jake Reed Scholarship.
As you may know, Officer Jake Reed, along with Corporal Ben Cooper, lost their lives in the line of duty on March 9th, 2022. This loss devasted the community of Joplin, Missouri.
A memorial scholarship was set up in the name of Officer Jake Reed who also attended MSSU, to honor the sacrifice he made. We here at Black Rain Ordnance may be biased, but we cannot think of a better recipient than our own, Adam Morris. Adam has been with us since July of this year and has been an invaluable addition to our retail team. Always greets customers with a warm welcome, is always willing to lend a helping hand, and is very knowledgeable about firearms. His skills and his personality have certainly made an impression.
Adam is studying Criminal Justice at Missouri Southern State University (MSSU) in Joplin, Missouri. With aspirations to serve under the badge, being awarded this scholarship means a great deal to him.
“It is such an honor to be awarded this scholarship. Jake and the ultimate sacrafice he made will always be an inspiration to me and many others. I hope to continue his honorable legacy through my studies, and eventually my service. I am looking forward to all the amazing opporunities that the Officer Jake Reed Scholarship will open for criminal justice students in the future!” ~ Adam Morris
Black Rain Ordnance wants to invite you in extending the biggest of congratulations to Adam! You can also stop by BRO at almost anytime during the week and congratulate him yourself!
