Marilyn Morris

Founder and President of Aim for Success, Inc.


In 1984, Marilyn Morris was invited to speak to one of her daughters' classes about sexual abstinence. She jumped at the chance to tell teenagers what she wished someone had told her. In 1968, the beginning of her senior year in high school, Marilyn's dreams and goals were completely changed when she found out she was pregnant. She and Charles Morris were forced to grow up overnight when they were married at the age of 17 and 18. Marilyn's personal experience has given her a passion to help young people avoid the risks of sexual activity and save sex until marriage.

Marilyn's captivating and entertaining speaking style resulted in her giving 50 presentations to 3,745 participants in 1990. During the next few years the numbers continued to grow. In August 1993, Marilyn formed Aim for Success, Inc., as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, educational organization. She continues to serve as its President today. Marilyn's husband, Charles, now a CPA, joined Marilyn at Aim for Success in 1994 to serve as CFO. Charles and Marilyn have two grown, married daughters, and five grandchildren.


Marilyn has been featured on The Discovery Channel, National Public 

Radio (NPR), Fox News-New York, The Jane Pauley Show and in Rolling Stone Magazine. Marilyn has received recognition from Dr. Laura, Focus on the Family, and President George W. Bush.
