Dear Canadian Alumnus,
The upcoming holidays should be a happy time, but this season is tinged with sadness
as we reflect on the tragic loss of Morla Milne (SSP 1999) earlier this year. Most of
us knew Morla professionally as the SSP Assistant Director since 2001, and many of
us were even more privileged to be her friend. Morla brought to ISU the best Canadian
values and wholly embodied ISU's international, intercultural, and interdisciplinary
ideals. Having lived in Tanzania, Sudan, Kenya, and Zimbabwe, Morla was particularly
concerned about the state of the developing world. As a student at SSP 1999, she became
an advocate for the application of space technology to help lesser developed nations.
Her humanity, dedication, and humor are irreplaceable and she will be greatly missed.
As the holiday season approaches and thoughts turn to gifts for loved ones, we hope
you will consider one more gift in memory of this wonderful member of the ISU family.
The Morla Milne Memorial Scholarship has been established to keep Morla's memory alive
by helping future students get the opportunity to experience ISU as we have.
Donations should be made in the following manner:
