It took a lot of courage and fortitude for Marchi to straighten out his life.
“I’ve been sober now for more than two years,’’ Marchi said in that 2009 interview. “Feb. 6, 2007 was the last time I ever had alcohol in my body.’’
We are glad that by returning to be an effective and popular administrator that Edmond Marchi proved us wrong in recommending his dismissal.
“I think it’s taught me you shouldn’t give up on people too easily,’’ Board Chairman James Powers said in 2009. “Sometimes they change.’’
We wish Mr. Marchi happiness and continued success in his career.
