In Memoriam: April Morton

It is with sincerest grief that we announce the sudden passing of April Morton.

April was a vibrant Data Science & Engineering student who began her studies with the Bredesen Center in 2017.

Her ORNL supervisor, Budhu Bhaduri, remembers: “April’s life was large and extraordinary and touched many groups inside and outside of ORNL. She was an interdisciplinary scientist working across divisions, an avid kayaker, a salsa dancer. She was also active in local educational groups and outreach programs.”

Her legacy in the Bredesen Center continues through current students she helped recruit and inspire, as well as the lasting impact on all those who knew her through her positive and friendly presence and disciplined pursuit of her goals, whether in work or extracurricular activities.
