Atlanta – Transwestern today announces Southeast President Bruce Ford has been honored with the “Distinguished Service Award” by Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School. This award recognizes an individual who has provided outstanding service and loyalty to Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School through leadership, recruitment, advocacy, fundraising and faithful service to the school.
“Bruce’s commitment to Holy Innocents’ success is admirable and a true inspiration for our faculty, staff, parents and students,” said Paul Barton, Head of School. “He has not only given his time and expertise but has left a positive impact that will be felt at the school for years to come.”
Ford served on the school’s board of directors for the last eight years, serving as Chairman of the Board for the last six years. Prior to that, he served two years on the facilities committee. This is Ford’s last year serving on the board.
During his time on the board, Ford ran the largest capital campaign in the school’s history, raising in excess of $22 million dollars. In addition, under his leadership, the school added a 59,000-square-foot STEM building and food court.
