Ellsworth Welch was a truly dedicated and life long educator. He served as the esteemed Principal of Ocean Avenue Elementary School for many years. He never ceased caring about the children, staff and families of the school community. Long after his retirement, if you met him, he would ask about the children who had attended the school. He was truly interested in the well being of the students.
