Barnard Early Childhood Center Custodian Derrick Burford

Amy’s Greenhouse at the Barnard Early Childhood Center is a cherished component of students’ educational experience, and it is kept in tip-top shape thanks to many, including dedicated custodian Derrick Burford! Amy’s Greenhouse focuses on science education and enables hundreds of children to participate in horticultural projects and celebratory events. It is a living memorial to Amy O’Doherty. The 23-year-old daughter of since-retired Barnard teacher Geraldine Davie, O'Doherty worked at Cantor Fitzgerald and perished in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.
