Ridgefield High School Stages Surprise Send-Off for District’s School Resource Officer

As he prepares to retire from his position as School Resource Officer for the Ridgefield School District, Howard Anderson, got a surprise farewell this week from the students and staff at Ridgefield High School.

Howard Anderson

Summoned to the high school stadium for what he thought was a typical call, Anderson arrived to find the entire RHS student body gathered there.  Standing together to wish him well, the students had formed the letters of Anderson’s first name on the football field—a poignant tribute to the person the district could always depend on in situations when it counted the most.

Anderson, who has been the district’s School Resource Officer since 2013, will retire this week.

Thank you, Howard for always being there for us.  Happy Retirement!   We will miss you.
