Montgomery Acacemy announced the death of Michael Floyd on their Facebook page Thursday afternoon. Floyd had served as the head Track and Field coach and assistant Cross Country coach for nearly a decade.
Montgomery Academy is deeply saddened to share that Michael Floyd, a member of the MA faculty for 10 years, has passed away.Coach Floyd was a fixture in our history department and our track and field program and our cross country program over the past decade. He was deeply dedicated to his students and his program, putting in long hours at the school and traveling across the state and region to transport his student-athletes to meets. Furthermore, Coach Floyd was an accomplished teacher of AP World History, and he regularly served as a reader for the AP program during the summer months.Michael was known for this dry wit, and also for his deep care and advocacy for his students. He would often meet students who wanted to continue to work in off-hours and during holidays to ensure that they had the training opportunities that they needed. He also found opportunities through his track and field program to serve the community; he regularly collected items for the Montgomery Area Food Bank through the Race Against Hunger track meet that MA regularly hosted. He will be dearly missed by his students and by his colleagues.It will clearly take us all some time to process this loss within our community. The entire MA community will miss him. Please keep Coach Floyd's family and friends in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.We look forward to better days ahead.All the best,John McWilliams
