Randy L. Morrison Low Brass Studio

and Endowed Scholarship

A native of New Mexico, Randy Lynn Morrison was a proud supporter of the music department at Texas A&M-Commerce.  He earned a Bachelor’s of Music Education, a Master’s of Music Performance, and a Master’s in Business Administration, all from East Texas State University, now Texas A&M University–Commerce. 

 

Randy was always happy serving others and was a proud member of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia and an honorary member of Kappa Kappa Psi.  He served as an assistant band director at South Grand Prairie High School and as the band director for Greenville Junior High. Randy worked for 29 years, and was recognized for a number of achievements, as a Contract Administrator at E-Systems, Raytheon, and L-3 in Greenville, Texas.

 

He enjoyed playing tuba and bass trombone for the Dallas Christian Jazz Band, Swing Street Connection, Trombonium Symphonium, and the Singing Men of Texas. He was a master woodcrafter and, through a wood recovery project, Randy created various wood designs to benefit the music scholarship fund for Texas A&M-Commerce. He was an active member of the Golden K Kiwanis Club, participating in many community projects. He led music for various churches and the Adult 7 Dept. at Ridgecrest Baptist.

 

 

 

 

Since retirement from L-3 in April of 2011, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, woodworking, and most recently, he taught himself to make intricate trout-fishing flies. In August of 2013, he returned to his first love of teaching tuba to high school students at Rockwall-Heath High School. Randy’s activities always included expressions of genuine interest in his family and his friends who were impacted by his kind and gentle spirit. 

 

In October 2014, through generous donations from the Morrison family and friends, we were happy to honor Randy and his achievements by dedicating the tuba/euphonium studio as the Randy Morrison Low Brass Studio.
