Today, it is with much gratitude in our hearts that we announce the retirement of former Corps Director Fred Morris. Fred became the Director of the Troopers in 2006 during our inactive year and helped stabilize the organization, returning the corps to competition in 2007, a finals run in 2009, and consistent semi-finalist appearances ever since. Fred aided in the transition to a new Corps Director when he took on the role of Senior Executive Advisor in 2019.
"We would like to thank Fred for his incredible service to the thousands of young people during his time as Director. He was the right person at the right time, and his leadership paved the way for the Troopers to continue on a path of consistency and success. On behalf of the entire Troopernation, we wish you the very best." - Executive Director, Michael Ottoes
