Dr. Morris, who recently earned her doctorate in Educational Leadership, has an extensive nonprofit and public education administration background, having spent the majority of her career serving children and communities in Philadelphia.  She brings a strong understanding of and value for culture and cultural arts in the community and in a library setting.
