Birmingham-Southern College students recognized for service-learning involvement

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Five Birmingham-Southern College students received the Christopher T. Morgan Scholarship Award during the college's 2007 Honors Day Convocation.

The award, which offers assistance to students who plan to participate in service-learning projects while in college, was established in 1998 in memory of Morgan, a 1990 Birmingham-Southern graduate who died of cancer.
