… Ashley Bryan! He is a part of everyone’s island family, an artist, a teacher, a children’s book author and illustrator, a poet, a lifelong learner, a traveler, a speaker, and the most energetic person I know.
When the Islesford School students started talking about the possibility of changing the name of their school to the Ashley Bryan Elementary School, the idea went to the selectmen who put it on the warrant for Town Meeting. The article passed after a most heartfelt period of discussion in favor of the idea.
Today, the students at the Ashley Bryan School invited him over for a little party to show him their ideas for new signs.
He looks pretty pleased!
