After a five year hiatus, Morris transferred to the University of the District of Columbia. At UDC, he excelled, making the Dean’s List, getting inducted into Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society, earning Who’s Who Among Students in American Colleges & Universities, leading Student Government, and pledging Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. Morris’ experiences exemplified the very tenets in which the men of Omega subscribe: Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance, and Uplift. While graduating, Magna Cum Laude, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Education was a highlight in this season of Morris Redd’s life, marrying Ms. Doneta Dugger, was the absolute pinnacle.
