Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce names Jim Morrison as C. Clyde Jones Volunteer of the Year

Volunteer of the Year 23

Jim Morrison was recognized as the 2023 C. Clyde Jones Volunteer of the Year during Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Meeting at Manhattan Conference Center, Feb. 9.

The Chamber’s volunteer of the year award honors C. Clyde Jones, a 60-year Manhattan resident who served as first dean of Kansas State University’s College of Business. Jones has a long-running record of community service activity in Manhattan, to include Shepherd’s Crossing.

Morrison is the 35th recipient of the C. Clyde Jones Volunteer of the Year award.Morrison moved to Riley County in 1971 after graduating from Washburn Law School to join the Riley County Attorney’s Office. He was there until 1975 when he left to found Morrison, Frost, Olsen, Irvine & Schartz Law Firm. He retired from the firm last year after 48 years.Jim held a formative role in launching Meadowlark Hills Retirement Community and served on its board for 6 years. He also served as the first secretary of the Riley County Law Board when the Manhattan Police Department and the Riley County Sheriff’s Department merged.

Morrison is a co-founder of the Flint Hills Breadbasket, the Manhattan Public Schools Foundation and the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation.

“While this award officially recognizes the volunteer of the year, in Jim’s case, it should reflect his service as the volunteer of a lifetime,” said Mark Knackendoffel, outgoing chair of the chamber and presenter at the organization’s annual meeting.
