A self-proclaimed “Garden Grove Girl,” Bree Morse was born and raised in the city she feels so lucky to represent. She is a 20-year-old sophomore at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) working toward her Bachelor of Science in Business Marketing. She sees the value of college education, and works hard to convey her thirst for learning, demonstrated by her recognition on both the President’s and Dean’s list at CSULB. In addition, she is also a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and is in the top twentieth percentile of college undergraduate scholars.
Bree is an active member on her campus as a member of the Delta Gamma sorority. She has held the position of Director of Scholarship, and is currently the Vice President of Membership. Last fall she was able to represent her organization as “Miss Delta Gamma” at a philanthropy pageant. She raised the most amount of money in ticket and t-shirt sales and ultimately won the title of “Miss Greek 2010”. Being in a sorority, has brought new lifelong relationships into her life, and has also taught her the important skills of networking, time management, and maintaining a positive image as a respectable woman.
Bree believes in an active lifestyle, and has portrayed this ideal as a member of a competitive cheerleading team. She competed throughout the country for eleven (11) years, winning numerous National Championships and was also lucky enough to attend the Cheerleading World Championships twice. She was recognized as the Golden State Spirit Association’s “Cheerleader of the Year” in 2010, and was featured in “Inside Cheerleading” magazine. Although she has aged out of the sport, she has not let the sport escape her life completely. She now works as a coach, teaching cheerleaders ages 5 to 18 the proper technique in order to help tem reach their potential. Her ultimate goal is for them to discover the same passion for this activity as she did, and to eventually apply the same lessons of perseverance, hard work, and determinism learned in competition to their own lives.
Bree graduated from Pacifica High School in Garden Grove in 2012 and was extremely active on her campus. She held the positions of Sophomore Class President, Social/Historian, and Senior Class President in her school’s Associated Student Body. A varsity cheerleader for all 4 years of high school, she proudly displayed her school spirit both on and off the football sidelines. At the end of her senior year, she was recognized with the school’s “Leadership Award,” and was also the female recipient of the “Most Worthy Mariner” Award.
During her year of service, Bree’s aspiration is to give back to the city that has given her so much throughout her life. She sees Garden Grove as her home and its residents as essentially a diverse family. She is honored to serve as an ambassador for this community.
