Canon City yearbook adviser moving on to new career after 30 years

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Here is a wonderful feature article to check out this week from the Canon City Daily Record on Canon City High School yearbook adviser Ed Bray.

Bray has been in charge of yearbook production at the school for nearly 30 years, but now he’s decided to go back to school at 60 and study nursing.

“I’m going to miss the enthusiasm of the kids. I kind of feed off of their energy,” Bray told the newspaper. “I’ll certainly miss all my interaction with kids. They are funny and honest and creative.”
