Monday, March 27, 2017

McCaffrey said. “So I’m forever grateful.” McGilvray was an educator, coach, community leader and first-term senator representing Bow and Dunbarton, along with parts of Manchester, Candia and Hooksett. He was also president of the New Hampshire chapter of the National Education Association, the state’s largest teacher’s union.Before McGilvray ascended to the top of the union and the halls of the Senate, he helped struggling friends anyway he could. People close to him remembered those moments Wednesday.“His room was always a place that you could go,” McCaffrey said.That’s what Gene Martin remembered, too. Martin, a former Democratic Party operative, helped McGilvray win his Senate seat last year. But back in 2002, he was in McGilvray’s social studies class at Memorial.“If you were out of school for a few days, he would be the first to pull you aside in the hallway and ask you what was going on,” Martin said.McGilvray spent more than two decades at Memorial, where he was the Manchester union steward, before taking over the state’s NEA chapter. Memorial is where he met Phil Sapienza, a longtime friend who now teaches at Hillside Middle School in Manchester.He said McGilvray “never put himself first.” “He always looked out for others, made sure everybody was taken care of. He had a sense of who needed help,” Sapienza said.Ben Dick took over as the head of the Manchester NEA chapter for awhile once McGilvray left.“He was the kind of person that always, always thought about how something would affect the greater good,” Dick said.And McGilvray always took care to credit a team larger than himself “even if it wasn’t justified,” Dick said.“If I did anything well in the union role, I learned it from Scott McGilvray,” he said.McGilvray is survived by his wife, Patti, and two adult daughters.Republican Gov...
