Morgan Cruise (Baltimore City)

Black History Month Leadership & Service Honoree Morgan Cruise is not only an accomplished dancer and ambassador for the arts, but she has also been a leader in service as a volunteer assistant coordinator for the Stillmeadow Community Food Pantry

Cruise volunteered over 1,000 hours to deliver over 300,000 pounds of food during 2020. The pandemic has resulted in increased food insecurity, and Cruise reacted by volunteering nearly every day each week to pick-up, pack, deliver, and serve food, while balancing her responsibilities as a student, performer, mentor, student-teacher, and Ambassador for Brown Girls Do Ballet and Russian Pointe. 

“Volunteering is important to me because it gives me the opportunity to make a difference in my community and the families that we serve,” said Morgan Cruise. “I enjoy learning about how our community work has impacted so many lives, and I hope to continue impacting others.”
