KNOXVILLE—On February 21, Johnson hosted for the first time, the Allen Morris Moustache Memorial 5k run/walk. This event was created to benefit the Allen Morris Memorial Scholarship Fund.
In 2016, Morris unexpectedly died during a softball tournament for his church—First Christian Church in Cookeville, TN where he preached, according to the scholarship’s gofundme page.

David Lee and Tracy Shaner put together this event in honor of Morris and to represent the class of 1988.

“We were roommates for a year and a half,” Lee explains. “One of the best things about Allen was how humble, kind and caring he was.”
Together with this 5k and the gofundme page, the Allen Morris Scholarship fund has raised more than $1,000.
