My name is Tyler Morris and I'm a part-time senior computer information systems & technology student at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. I began my undergraduate career in 2011, after graduating from Bradford Area High School.
During my time at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, I have been actively involved on campus as a student leader. I have served in various positions including the Vice President and later President of the Pride Alliance, a student organization focused on supporting LGBTQ+ students. I've served as a student representative on our campus President's Diversity Committee and on our Faculty/Staff LGBTQ+ Advisory Committee. It is my mission to spread awareness of the issues facing the LGBTQ+ community, to encourage acceptance, and to strive for diversity & inclusion on campus & in the community.
Off campus I am currently serving as a volunteer for the Myasthenia Gravis Hope Foundation as one of their Ambassadors of Hope. It is my mission to be a source of hope and encouragement for people, like me, with a rare neuromuscular/autoimmune disease called myasthenia gravis. It is my duty to share my story as a disabled, chronically ill college student to provide hope to other chronically ill college students.
I am also a licensed amateur radio (ham radio) operator, N3TDM, and have experience working with digital repeaters, especially DSTAR repeaters. I have served on my local emergency communications team and have assisted in providing communications for various events within my community and surrounding communities. I was licensed at the age of 14 and currently hold an extra class license. I am not very active on the air, however I manage a local DSTAR repeater with a friend and fellow ham.
