Hi Ed

November 6th, 2012

I went to the McCarthy School today to vote and I don’t know if I just never realized it, or the wing is newly dedicated (probably the latter) but it was great to see the portrait of Ed Convery who passed away this year.  For anyone who doesn’t know, Ed was the Principal of the McCarthy school for many years and I got to know him from working at the History Center.
Ed was one of the most favorite people that I’ve ever been lucky enough to know.  I didn’t even believe he was a former principal when I first met him because he was so funny and laid back.  Whenever he’d walk in the room at work I’d be in a great mood and if he called in the middle of a hectic day, the stress I was feeling would just disintegrate.  There are so few people that have the power to do that since I’m such a mashugana.  Anyway, it was nice treat to see him this morning and remember what an awesome guy he was.


  1. McCarthy was my elementary school (it was Warren Oaks then, and Miss McCarthy was the principal) and Ed Convery was my neighbor for several years before his family outgrew the house on Wood Terrace. It’s good to see this and to be reminded of the community I grew up in and the good people I knew. Thanks!

  2. Mr. Convery was my 6th grade teacher at Charlotte Dunning School, and remains one of the best, most dedicated teachers I ever had. As adults we met again many times, having a mutual friend, and he never forgot my full maiden name–and was always full of fun. What a loss to everyone who knew him–but what a well-deserved dedication at the McCarthy School. He was a much-loved gentleman.
