Montana State University hosted its first Dyslexia and Innovation (DXI) Symposium of Changemakers. The goal of the inaugural two-day symposium was to bring together administrators, community members, educators, parents, students, and researchers to spotlight innovative ideas that can create cultural and systemic change related to dyslexia. We are proud to announce that the Joseph James Morelli Legacy Foundation was highlighted and had premiere access to promote the Foundation and scholarship. Fun Fact – Joseph was a mechanical engineering major at MSU and on the Dean’s List. So far two MSU students have received a Morelli Scholarship. For more information about the symposium, click here.
