Orchids to the Board of Overseers at the Baltimore School for the Arts for their decision to appoint Chris Ford as the new director! The appointment is certainly an honor for Dr. Ford and his family, but even more an honor for the school. A great musician in his own right, Dr. Ford could well have pursued a performance career, but instead chose to share his gift and love of music and the arts with the city's young people, ourselves included.
In its relatively short history, the School for the Arts has been a beautiful success story on just about every level, not the least of which is its record of choosing the most outstanding individuals to serve as its directors. We are proud to be graduates!
