Coach Morris touched the life's of many students including myself. She pushed you hard and made you work. All while motivating you and letting you know she believed in you. I am left with many funny and good memories of her. May she Rest In Peace.

I worked with Renee for several years at Wolfe City ISD. She kind, caring and patient with our students with special needs. Renee earned the trust of the parents of our students, as well, and her pride in her kids' accomplishments was clear. She had a wonderful way of calming and encouraging the kids she worked with, and I am very thankful for all her hard work with them. I am very sad to hear of her passing, and am praying for God to comfort her friends and family at this sad time. Cindy McLain Counts
