Remembering Trustee Morris

Posted on Friday November 03, 2023

It is with deep sadness that Chair Susan Humphries announces on behalf of the Renfrew County District School Board (RCDSB), the passing of our esteemed colleague and friend, Trustee Bryon Morris. Bryon passed away Wednesday, at home after a brief illness.

Trustee Morris’ contributions to the RCDSB over the years have been immeasurable. His dedication to student achievement and the betterment of education leaves a lasting legacy. A retired educator with the RCDSB, Bryon began his years of service as a Trustee for the town of Petawawa in 1976. After some time away from his role as trustee, he rejoined the Board in 2014.  During his tenure, Bryon was a dedicated member of all major committees, where his insights and leadership made a significant impact. He also held the esteemed position of Chair of the Board, guiding the District with a deep commitment to student success. 

“Bryon’s legacy will live on in the projects and initiatives he helped shape during his time with the RCDSB,” states RCDSB Board Chair, Susan Humphries. “His dedication to the welfare and success of our students has left an impressionable mark, and he will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing and working with him.”

We are very grateful to Trustee Morris for the wealth of knowledge, passion for education and dedication to his community and the Board that he generously brought to his role. 

Our thoughts are with Bryon’s family during this difficult time - his wife Jennifer Morris (teacher at Valour K-12 School), their children, and grandchildren. The RCDSB sends our deepest condolences, and thanks them for sharing Bryon with us for so many years. His memory will be honored in a manner befitting his outstanding contributions to the RCDSB.
