Letter to the editor: Principal deserves credit for Nahant Rock Fair success

Thank you so much for your article about the Johnson Elementary School Inaugural Rock Fair, (Item, Nov. 28) held in Nahant on Nov. 27, 2018. While the article mentions the book, “The Rocks of Nahant and How to Become a Rock Detective,” created by Nahant SWIM, Inc., it fails to give credit to the Johnson Elementary School principal, Kevin Andrews, who organized this rock fair at his school. Principal Andrews took this book as his impetus, and then developed the individual teaching stations and coordinated the teachers, community volunteers, SWIM members and students to make this the successful event that it was. He deserves more credit for his part in the fair than he was given in the Item.
