Acknowledging Tom

I am writing with respect to the public discussions regarding Tom Farrell’s leadership of the Aspen School District. My son was a senior at Aspen High School when Tom was the principal. Since then I have worked professionally with Tom over the years on many issues regarding education and the well-being of our young people. I have always found Tom to be fair, reasonable, accessible, and committed to obtaining the best resources for his kids.

Tom has devoted his entire adult life to education and to youth. I would like to see the years leading to his retirement give him the honor, credit, and acknowledgment which I feel his work deserves. I support the unanimous endorsement of the school board for Tom’s leadership, and I want to go on record with that support.
