Thank you to LEGACY COLLEGE READINESS AND TOURS for affording me the opportunity of a lifetime! Miss Erica worked diligently to get me to Middle Tennessee State University and prepare me for my future. The college choices were overwhelming for me, as a recent high school graduate but she worked closely with me to narrow down the best institution that fit all my needs, including financial aid. She acted as a liaison between MTSU and I to communicate important details and even gave me the opportunity to meet with international affairs staff from the school before attending. This made my move to The U.S more comfortable and easier, as I was already familiar with some of the individuals I would've been in close contact with while I pursued my degree. Above and beyond is an understatement, as she ensured I got the best possible offer from a school that I can be proud of today, as a graduate.
Ms. Adderley received a Bsc in Biochemistry, concentration in pre-pharmaceuticals. She graduated Cum Laude.
I’d like to extend the utmost gratitude to Ms. Morris for her dedication toward ensuring me and so many others were financially able to attend University. In 2016, I received a call a few months after our first meeting asking me to be at a J.A conference in Nassau, Bahamas. Initially, I was unsure of the reason why; I was the recipient of a $10,000/yr scholarship award to attend Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.
Thanks to Ms. Morris behind the scenes dedication, a large portion of the financial burden was lifted for my four years in school. There aren’t enough words in the English dictionary to describe how thankful I am for her persistence in helping as much as she can.
My name is Gaja and I’m currently studying mechanical engineering. My experience with LEGACY COLLEGE READINESS AND TOURS was great! They understood all of the aspects I wanted in a university and found the perfect one, Florida Polytechnic.
I was able to perform past my ability because of the smaller campus and class sizes. Legacy college readiness listened to my needs as a student which improved my experience.
Thank you LEGACY COLLEGE READINESS & TOURS !
I would just like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Erica Morris and the LEGACY COLLEGE READINESS AND TOURS Bahamas team for all the assistance they gave during my journey to select a college.
Within the first few minutes of my interview with Ms. Morris, she introduced me to several institutions that offered my major of Actuarial Science.
Today, I found out that I would be the recipient of a full scholarship from Morgan State University. I am very excited to be a Bear and I am thankful for Ms. Morris and her organization.
The past 4 years of my life have changed me for a lifetime...and I can proudly say that Ms. Erica Morris did everything in her power to make my dreams literally become reality!
When I was in 12th grade, thinking about what I wanted to do after graduation, I worried a bit because I didn't know how to navigate exploring colleges abroad. Thankfully, I was involved in Junior Achievement New Providence where Ms. Morris served as the scholarship advisor. She sat and listened intently to all my plans and aspirations, and developed a strategic plan/approach on how to prepare me to find the school of my dreams. After studying for the SAT's and attending several college recruitment events, the blessing that is now my Alma Mater—Morgan State, fell into my lap. Ms. Morris has an amazing rapport with so many different admissions recruiters who are excited about bringing Bahamian minds and talents to their institutions. She continued to work with me as I applied to Morgan and sought my Honors scholarship (full ride). She also ensured that I was fully aware of the other Bahamian students who had gone to Morgan the year before me and were already achieving great things. A mentor, a guide, a personal cheerleader in your corner—all things that Ms. Morris embodies. My life-changing college experience would not have been the same without her!!
Thank you to Erica Morris at LEGACY COLLEGE READINESS AND TOURS for guiding me up the steps to becoming who I am today when I could not even find my footing.
I am Whitley Paige Cargill, a rising senior and international honors student studying Theatre Arts and Acting at the illustrious Historically Black College and University (HBCU) Morgan State University. I have been blessed with so much opportunity and time to decipher and grow into myself at Morgan State University. I am even more grateful for this time to grow my career in Entertainment as well.
Before I came to Morgan State, I knew I wanted to study the Arts, but was unsure and not confident in where I was going to go. I had a lot of societal pressure around me to be someone who I did not want to be. Initially I gave in and studied a major that made me miserable. Eventually, I grew in confidence and got tired of the pain. I found the strength to follow what I want to and to go after my dreams in Acting and Entertainment.
Erica Morris was essential in this journey, as she guided me with so much joy, support and passion. She helped me hone in on where I wanted to study by seeing what I enjoy. She helped me find confidence and feel accepted just by keeping me engaged and trusting me with Junior Achievement affairs. She led me to Morgan State University through Junior Achievement Bahamas. Outside of my academic life, Ms. Morris was also a great mentor to help me and my loved ones navigate the difficulties of communication, emotions and understanding one another in our relationships. Ms. Morris is a counselor, mentor, life coach and animated light of life that has guided me and so many others to being our best, most confident, most loving, most independent selves now. I am so grateful to her and support her mission to guide and encourage more students to become and be who they are meant to be through LEGACY COLLEGE READINESS AND TOURS.
I would like to extend my gratitude towards Miss Erica Morris for her dedication and hard work in securing a Full scholarship from the illustrious Morgan State University. During such a chaotic time in the world, Ms Morris reassured me and my parents that I will have a seat in one of Morgan’s classrooms. From my first encounter with Ms. Morris, she displayed a devoted character. She was devoted to her job and her students whom she often referred to as “my kids”. During this pandemic, she held several zoom meetings and telephone conversations with her students and their parents, ensuring us that she is working behind the scenes for scholarships. During our virtual meetings with Morgan’s representatives , she expressed genuine concern for her students. She did not want to disappoint any of her kids and their parents. When I officially got word that my scholarship had been approved, I witnessed Ms. Morris’ tears of joy stream down her face. Those long nights and hours long telephone conversations she endured finally paid off! I am elated to be a bear this upcoming Fall and to see the path I will be taking at Morgan State. I will forever be grateful for such a limited opportunity Miss Morris brought to me. She opened up the door for a successful future for myself which I will gracefully and proudly walk through. I am proud to say that this scholarship is a product of Junior Achievement and LEGACY COLLEGE READINESS AND , founded by Ms. Erica Morris. Once again, I would like to thank Miss Morris for her transparency, dedication, sweat and tears. Her good deeds will never go unnoticed.

My senior year in high school has been filled with many self-reflective, awesome, and confusing moments. Looking for colleges and universities seemed to make my head spin as I didn’t know where to start and what to look for whilst researching. After meeting with Erica Morris, she helped me to put my college goals into perspective and I was finally able to understand more clearly what I had to do when applying for college.
With that, I want to say THANK YOU, Miss. Morris for your kindness and wisdom.
I will forever take her words with me as I travel along the path to receiving a higher education at Sweet Briar College in Sweet Briar, Virginia. I pray that she will continue to successfully guide other students just as she has done with me.

My name is Troyvã Sweeting and I discovered St. George's University referral by Ms. Erica Morris. During my time as an acting most distinguished officer for my company for the JA year 2018-2019, I approached Ms.
Morris inquiring about the best options to carry out my studies in the veterinary field. She kindly presented me with a booklet of St. George's and began to exalt the university and all it has offer.
After researching St. George's and hearing favorable comments I applied, was admitted and am now preparing to begin the fall term online in August 2020.
Ms. Morris's recommendation saved me hassle and put me on the right path.
