SHERBURNE – The sixth annual Wall of Fame induction ceremony and reception was held on Thursday by the Sherburne-Earlville Central School District. There were six honorees total, two of whom are a husband and wife team. The plaques will be displayed in the Barbara Rabig Gallery in the middle/high school lobby as a testament to people who have made a great impact in the school and local community.
Superintendent Gayle Hellert opened the ceremony by expressing her gratitude for the inductees' efforts and said, “Congratulations to our honorees, it is our honor to honor you.”
Each honoree was introduced by a member of the wall of fame committee and was given a plaque to take home. After their introductions the honorees were invited to address the audience and then Rob Schutt, chair of the committee, set the Wall of Fame plaques on easels to be viewed by the audience. Schutt explained that all of the plaques were made by current students in Scott Bugbee's technology class.
