James D. Morrison Memorial Scholarship

James D. Morrison taught primarily English at Pleasant Valley High School for 20 years from 1962-1982.  He was a master teacher who was passionate about the English language, literature, and writing.  What he loved most was unlocking the mysteries of grammar and usage.  He was also adamant about propelling any and every one toward communicating with all the creative ammunition the English language could provide.  He was open to encouraging every step students took towards deep thought, analysis, and independent thinking.

“Moose,” as students and faculty alike called him with affection and humor, bore a confident manner, was a stickler for details, and had a wickedly dry sense of humor.  He loved his wife, Margaret and his dog, Wrinkles.  He cherished words, humor and using the English language.  And he loved young people – all very different and from varied walks of life – who came through his door at PVHS, completely unaware of a love for life and language that he would spark in them.  And it was with this love that in death in 2000 he has provided a scholarship fund for students who also possess that spark for life, whether brightly burning or as a little aware ember.

  • Be a graduating senior of PVHS
