Amesbury Schools rally to honor longtime supporter Brad Ford

(Continued)

“I’ve had the good fortune of Brad being one of the first people I met when I started working here,” Robinson said. “He’s so knowledgeable, we always have that feeling when Brad is here that everything is going to be OK.”

“He’s a can-do type of guy who gets things done,” said Mayor Thatcher Kezer. “He comes up with really creative ways to get things done better than what people expected.”

AEFI Executive Board member Cathy Toomey echoed those sentiments, saying that Ford has remained remarkably positive despite his illness and all the adversity he is facing.

“He’s an amazing guy, one of the people that everyone loves,” Toomey said. “He has been going through the process always upbeat, always with a smile on his face.”

The induction ceremony is free and open to the public, and tickets can be purchased for the reception for $25 at the superintendent’s office or online at www.aefionline.com. Tickets are limited and must be purchased by Nov. 30.
