Know Your Madisonian: Former principal embraces fine arts passion in latest role

Perhaps best known in Madison for his positions within the Madison School District, Ed Holmes has taken on a new identity through his work at the Overture Center.
After working 24 years in the school district, including two principal positions at Wright Middle School and West High School, Holmes retired in 2014. But he left retirement after only two years to become the Overture’s first director of diversity and inclusion.
“I was comfortable in retirement but I didn’t think that was my last stop,” Holmes said. “I just love the arts. That’s a passion of mine.”
