Remembering Paul Hayes: Champion for education
'He was a quiet but powerful force, who went the extra mile to see that student achievement was spotlighted' - AWR
By Alan W. Reed
All of us in the Adair County School District were very saddened to learn about the passing of Paul Hayes, a champion for education. Paul probably contributed more to the education of our children than many could imagine by supporting our students, teachers and our school programs. He was a quiet but powerful force who went the extra mile to make sure student achievement was spotlighted.
I recall many times when Paul drove many extra miles to come to Knifley, Sparkville, and Shepherd Grade Centers to cover classroom events or sports. As an example of his commitment, he was here to photograph the swearing-in ceremony for Ms. Quinn Lasley on Tuesday morning when we all knew he should be resting. Paul Hayes was a friend, but as a professional journalist, wrote the story the way he saw it whether or not we necessarily agreed.
