Paul Morrow 2005 Honor Roll
NSSA Junior Founder
The Walk of Fame honored Paul Morrow, longtime administrator and principal of Sowers middle school in Huntington Beach, but also the founder of the National Scholastic Surfing Association’s (NSSA) award-winning “junior” competition program. “Paul has had a tremendous impact on the youth of our community,” said Peter Townend, Walk of Fame board member and former world champion (1976). “His concept of a junior division for competition surfing ultimately led to the adoption of a worldwide circuit.” Created in 1995, the honor roll pays tribute to those individuals who have contributed to surfing and its culture and are deserving of recognition.
