GRAND FORKS, N.D. – American Mothers Inc. (AMI) announced Meg Morley as the 2024 North Dakota Mother of the Year. Morley was chosen after a national nomination and selection process led by the organization that recognizes mothers and their positive impact in their homes and communities. AMI has been honoring mothers through the annual Mother of the Year award since 1935. Meg and her husband Michael have two grown sons, Dylan and Shane, and a wonderful dog named Gracie.

Meg Morley is a proud native North Dakotan, and a double alumnus of the University of North Dakota. As a practicing attorney and owner of Morley Legal Services, Meg works as a legal advocate for children, especially children in foster care. In 2019, Meg was named Mrs. North Dakota America, and in 2020, she and her husband became directors of the Mrs. North Dakota pageants.

She is committed to support the official philanthropy for the pageant, the Victoria’s Voice Foundation. Its mission is to educate students, parents, educators and communities on drug addiction and overdose prevention.

National AMI President, Joyce Stevens, says: “American Mothers continues to serve as a constant reminder of the importance of mothers and the influence they have at home and in the workplace. I love hearing the inspirational stories of moms from around the country that elevate the status of motherhood and more importantly, raise great kids!”

Morley will represent North Dakota at the AMI National Mothers Convention in Omaha, Nebraska where the 2024 National Mother of the Year will be selected and named on Saturday, April 27, 2024.
