Russ Adams

“As an educator, a parent and now a grandparent, the litmus test for me is, ‘Is this where I would want my children to grow up or want my grandchildren to grow up?’ And the answer for me is an unequivocal, ‘Yes.’”

Russ Adams, superintendent of the MOC-Floyd Valley school district, moved to Orange City in 2003, when an opportunity came available to be the high school principal. When his family moved, he was most impressed with what he considers to be Orange City’s strongest asset: its people.

“People are so respectful and so caring and so open to other people. I really think that the people here make this a place that we will call home for the rest of our lives.”
