So imagine her surprise when she received a phone call this past week from Jenny Valderas, senior manager of family support services for Operation Homefront San Antonio, telling her she would be awarded a full online scholarship from Southern New Hampshire University on Friday evening in Tampa, Fla.

“I was just in shock,” said Morris, the mom of two daughters, McKinley, 3, and Bristol, 8 months. Her husband, Anthony, an E-5 in the United States Coast Guard, had just deployed and she reached out via Facebook Messenger to share the exciting news with him.
