Though an average student, Ward found success on the football pitch; earning himself a spot on the Hearts of Midlothian Academy team, being promoted to the senior team at seventeen. Calvin had great success in his professional career as he transferred to the English League, and even played in the 1990 World Cup. However, after ten years he was forced to retire after a string of knee injuries. He then decided to start over and teach after getting his degree in 2001. However, seeing his students and their family’s struggle inspired Calvin to not just stand by and ask for more. The minor celebrity status gave him the tool to do something, so he had the obligation to act. He stood for Scottish Parliament as a Labour candidate and won easily. His time in Holyrood molded him as a fiery debater and loud advocate for working people. He stood in 2010 for Edinburgh South, and while he was victorious Labour was not. He has since served in Shadow roles, rising as high as Education Secretary under Corbyn. He supported Better Together and Remain in their respected referenda. He voted for strikes in Syria in 2015. He has been adamant that he would not support either a Hard Brexit or No Deal Brexit. He is married to Chelsea Ward and they have two sons Michael and Peter. Ward still enjoys golf and jogs most mornings. He is known to also enjoy spirits and cigars in moderation
