Awarded to a current University at Buffalo Nutrition Science or Exercise Science graduate student completing thesis work.
To his family and friends, Matthew Morris was their glue, inspiration, often voice of reason. Self-improvement and lifelong learning framed his life. His quiet voice in the ear of his friends and family helped everyone he touched look at life with a renewed sense of purpose. Matt cared about helping others in their research. He would come in at odd hours to participate in any way that he could. Always trying to learn more was Matt's hallmark while he was in his undergraduate education and more so when he was finishing his MS thesis work, which was cut short by his unexpected passing.
