My ads have mainly appeared in university alumni magazines, telling readers how their support makes a difference to students. Here's copy from an ad about a Rice scholarship:

MOBster on a Creative High Note Thanks to Scholarship Support

Jeff Morrow '06 exemplifies what it means to be a member of the MOB. Over the past three years, he's played the clarinet, written show scripts, and quietly completed other behind-the-scenes work.

With such dedication to the MOB, it is fitting that Jeff has been named the first recipient of the Rebecca Margaret Pollard-Grayson Scholarship for an outstanding MOB member.

The award was created by Brian Grayson '94 and his wife, Elizabeth, in memory of their infant daughter, Rebecca, so that they could make a mark in the world for her. Even though Rebecca will never get the chance to wear Lewis, a stuffed moose, on her fedora as her father did when he was in the Marching Owl Band, the scholarship in her honor will enable more students like Jeff to have a Rice and MOB experience they'll always treasure.

Jeff says he's touched that a family in their time of loss would reach out to help students like him. "I'm proud to carry on the memory of Rebecca, and I'm pleased that the MOB can recognize future members with this award."
