CENTERVILLE – Centerville resident George “Tony” Morrison was recognized as part of the Black Excellence on the Hill ceremony at the State House earlier this week.

He served in the United States Marine Corps and with the Massachusetts Air National Guard and later, as an educator.
He most recently served as the Principal at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School.
“When I think of what it means to lead a life of service, Tony is the first to come to mind,” said Representative Crocker.
“Tony has long been a visible community leader and I am proud to honor him as my nominee for the Black Excellence on the Hill award.”
Black Excellence on the Hill Day is a celebration of black culture, excellence, and achievement in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
