Before that, Ford had been New Albany’s assistant superintendent for seven years.
The 61-year-old Ford has been an educator for 39 years. He spent 19 years as a classroom teacher at Pine Grove High School in Tippah County before working 13 years as vocational/career and technical director in New Albany and then becoming assistant superintendent.
