Get Well Wishes for METCO Director Andrew Nyamekye
May 23, 2020
Yesterday, METCO Director Andrew Nyamekye joined us for the Virtual Coffee which is now posted at: https://concordps.zoom.us/rec/share/-e16MbDL_UJOaaOU9ETFfY0rBaG9X6a82yAb-6IFmEwvscNh7Rq3bcEcokH506Vx.
He provided a rich update about what is happening with the METCO program during the school closure. As you’ll see below, we are honoring Mr. Nyamekye today through a virtual get well card after he was in a serious car accident in March returning from Boston after delivering laptops to students at their homes. He barely missed a beat in supporting the students and families. Among the many heroes of the crisis, Mr. Nyamkeye is certainly one. Thank you to the CCHS teachers who initiated this effort and wrote the note enclosed below.
To the Communities of Concord, Carlisle and Boston:
As many of you know, our METCO director, Mr. Nyamekye, was involved in a serious car accident while delivering laptops to student homes the week after our schools were closed. He is on the mend, but he suffered serious injuries that require 12 weeks of bed rest and extensive rehab.
Mr. Nyamekye has already received many thoughtful cards from students and staff in the mail. However, he wishes to refrain from reading paper messages for the time being.
So we invite the entire school community to go online and express your appreciation! CCHS and Concord Schools are declaring this Saturday May 23rd “We love Mr. Nyamekye Day“. Messages can include homemade videos with “get well” wishes, photos of you and your family that you think he would enjoy, online cards to keep his spirits up, or just a few kind words!

Thank you for joining us in honoring a teacher, leader, colleague and friend who goes above and beyond to support our entire school community.
Get well soon, Mr. Nyamekye. We love you!
