Michael "Mike" Morrison has taken his passion for the outdoors and coupled that with his love of teaching to provide outdoor experiences and opportunities for children in the Monadnock Regional School District that are simply remarkable.

As a retired science teacher, Mike has the skill necessary to make these experiences fulfilling and rewarding in a "real-life" setting. He is the founder and advisor to Monadnock Regional High Schools Fish and Game Club, a role he continues to fill even in his retirement. Most recently, Mike worked with a group of students in the club on an Extended Learning Opportunity (ELO) that involved a study of the Ashuelot River in Swanzey, N.H. The students took water samples in the river for testing and shared their results with the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. They participated in activities with real-world implications, which highlighted and emphasized the role of resource agencies and how they work to protect the environment. Their results were so impressive, Fish and Game is sharing the information with others, and the students were nominated for an award.

Mike is also very involved with the out-of-school time program, helping to develop and offer outdoor education programs for children to learn archery, fishing, and even gun safety. He is the coach of the Monadnock Bass Fishing team, and he teaches CPR and first aid to the kids on his own time. He is always ready, willing, and able to serve children and their education.

James Butterfield, a science teacher at MRHS, offers this praise, "Mike has instructed and inspired hundreds of students in his 20+ years as a teacher. His enthusiastic and charismatic personality combined with his hands-on approach not only facilitates the learning process but encourages students to stretch beyond their comfort zones to maximize their potential as learners while learning about the environment."
