On June 8, 2011, the 92nd Street SE corner at Columbus Avenue will be renamed PS 84 Sidney Morison Way in honor of GS alumnus Sidney H. Morison ’63.

As West Side Spirit reported, "Morison graduated from Columbia University in 1963 and did his post-graduate work at Harvard. He began his career in New York City as a math teacher at JHS 118, then became a math coordinator for District 3 and was later named Deputy to the Superintendent for District 3 before becoming the principal of PS 84, the Lillian Weber School, for almost three decades.

"While principal, PS 84 won the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, which is a national award for Integrated Arts, and in 1989 Principal Morison was awarded New York City's "Schools and Culture Award." He retired from the department of Education in 1995 and became a professor at City College, Bank Street College and Barnard College. He also consulted to the National Institute of Education, Teachers Cops, Carnegie Corp. and the Ford Foundation."
