A Man with a Special Heart
When teacher Maryanne Payne put up a Facebook post asking for equipment donations for students at Leach School participating in the Special Olympics, she had no idea one single man would fulfill that request and more. Ed Ward not only purchased soccer equipment for the Special Olympics, he also purchased everything on the “wish list” for the school’s physical education program. That’s not all, Ward personally delivered all of the items to the school and asked to meet the students who would be using them. The students with special needs at Leach depend on special people like Ed Ward. Ward is pictured with Leach's Teacher of the Year, Frank Hughes on the bottom left. Thanks, Mr. Ward!
