Episode 90: Mr. Crawford

August 4, 2019

In 1980, a fluke brought soon-to-be college graduate Tony Crawford to Canby for his student teaching assignment. It was a town he had never once set foot in before. But for 35 years, he dedicated himself to teaching a generation of Canby students.

To many, he's best-known for the many important and powerful guests he helped welcome to the Canby School District over the years, from First Lady Nancy Reagan to the Dalai Lama. In today's episode, we look back over Tony's remarkable career and discuss his next adventure, which will take him far, far from Canby.
