Scott Mayor Purvis Morrison and School Board Member Mary Morrison were featured in the international magazine, Kreol. 

The magazine , which is published in Great Britain, features stories about Creole people from around the world.

"The honor is to have the opp to tell our story, it’s such a beautiful story, and I love history," Mary Morrison says. "I think it is so important for our kids and our families to know what went on, and how we got to where we are today. That’s probably the most exciting thing to me." 

The story  includes a history of Scott, the Morrisons’ personal and political histories, and their values and belief systems, which are rooted in their Creole culture. 

Purvis Morrison said he enjoys reading the stories of Creoles in the magazine, because it looks at the values and accomplishments, as well as the history, of the community.

The magazine’s editor, Georgina Dhillon, writes that it "is dedicated to promoting the Creole culture across Creole-speaking countries and beyond. The lively music, creative dances, interpretive arts, rich language, honoured traditions and wealth of knowledge of Creole people will be shared and celebrated, linking Creole cultures together. Kreol Magazine will feature role models, spotlighting accomplished individuals who have demonstrated success in personal character and industry. You’ll meet Creole individuals who shine as examples locally and globally, lifting up the profile of Creole people for the entire world to recognise, honour and applaud."
