My Adrian Connection
My family moved to Adrian in 1966 when my grandfather accepted the position of Assistant Superintendent of Adrian Public Schools. My father, his brother and sister moved with my grandparents into a house they rented until their permanent home was ready to be lived in. Shortly after moving to Adrian my grandmother gave birth to my fathers second sister and 18 months later his youngest sister was born. My grandparents five children all went through the Adrian Public School System from elementary school to high school. When my father’s youngest sister became school age, my grandmother began working at Bixby Medical Center in Adrian, where worked until she was in her early 70s. My grandfather retired from the Adrian Public Schools in 1986 after 30 years of service. He stayed on as a consultant for a several years after retiring. In a few years my grandparents will have lived in the same home in Adrian for 50 years. They have high regards for Adrian’s Public School System and the community of Adrian as a whole.
