It is with great sadness that we inform you of the loss of longtime Anderson 3 employee and friend, Mr. (Coach) David Richardson. David was an integral part of Anderson 3 and Crescent High School for over 30 years. He was a bus driver, instructional assistant, facilities handyman, coach of multiple sports, and friend to everyone that met him. David will be forever known for his kind spirit, gentle heart, and warm hugs. He never hesitated to lend a hand to anyone and truly exemplified the spirit of Crescent High School and Anderson 3. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends as they navigate the days ahead. Coach Richardson's obituary and service information can be found here: https://bit.ly/3p63any You will forever be in our hearts, coach. 💛

"Although I do not get to work hands on in the classroom or see our ASD3 students each day, I take great pride in helping to support the teachers, administrators, and staff in our district to educate our students to the highest standards possible. Helping with extracurricular activities and athletics is also very important to me. The fact that I get to work with some of the best people on this side of heaven is just a bonus! ASD3 is a great place to work." Here are three facts about Mrs. Jarrard: 1. My husband, Bones Jarrard, calls me "shortie" even though I'm six feet tall! 2. My daughter, Rachel Shore, is the school nurse at Crescent High School. 3. My grandchildren call me "Darlin," a name given to me by my oldest granddaughter, Danni Rae Shore.
