I just heard from union president Camille Zombro that Don Morrison, the former president of both the National Education Association and of the then-San Diego Teachers Association, has passed away.

Those are big titles in the union world: The National Education Association is the countrywide affiliate of the local union that represents teachers in San Diego Unified. Zombro said that Morrison helped build local union offices by creating a fund for local staff. She also said that Morrison returned to teaching later in his career, working at Memorial Middle School in San Diego.

If you have remembrances of Morrison, feel free to send me an e-mail at emily.alpert@voiceofsandiego.org.
