A Message from the Huntington School Board and Administration . . .
It is with heavy hearts that the Huntington Board of Education and administration mourn the passing of our friend and colleague, Adam Spector. Adam was a trustee, an active community member and a parent who advocated for all. He passionately devoted his time and energy to this school district.
In the time that he served on the school board, Adam helped facilitate the re-opening of Jack Abrams as a STEM magnet school and the restoration of full-day kindergarten. He fiercely defended transparency and equity in everything that he did.
He loved his work on the school board and we will feel his absence at every board meeting. No one can match his enthusiasm and passion for our district and for doing what’s right.
We send our deepest condolences to his wife Meredith, his children and his extended family.
Adam was to begin his second term as a trustee next week. He made us smile and laugh every day and we will sorely miss him.
