— The first six members of the Westport Wall of Distinction were inducted during ceremonies Oct. 6.

Alice LaRock, Tom Beauvais, Julie Freeman-Moore and Ryan Sherman were able to attend the event, held at the Westport Hotel and Tavern, while alum Dr. Laura Davis and former student, coach and teacher Edgar “Eddie” Card were unable to make it for the festivities.

Each in attendance said they were honored to be a part of what organizers hope is a new annual tradition and way to honor former Westport students and educators.

“I am very, very proud of what the school district is doing and continues to do for the students,” Beauvais, a former educator and coach, said. “We have had such a great school and there are just so many traditions that go from one generation of students to the next, and this is a way to celebrate those.”

It’s a great honor, and it is nice to see the people who have come here and catch up with them,” Moore, a standout basketball player for Westport, said.

“It’s an honor that I am proud of and I can assure you that I have tried my best to fulfil all of the duties that I have been responsible for at the school,” LaRock, a life-long member of the WCS community and current school board president, said.

“It’s really quite an honor and I am humbled by it,” Sherman, an athletic standout and current Superintendent at Schuylerville Central School, said. “Westport is very special to me and I take a lot of pride in WCS and growing up here. There are many fond memories of my days here and how they have impacted my life.”

Wall of Distinction committee member and current teacher Brad Rascoe said he was pleased with the class the committee had put together.

There is nothing outstanding or impressive about Ryan Sherman. He has made ZERO contributions. Tell us all about what kind of School Superintendent you REALLY are Ryan. No lies, no denials...only the truth about your tenure. Then lets see how favorably the community views you.

Wondering which of Ryan Sherman's accomplishments led to him being named to the first Westport Wall of Distinction? Was it his record of VERY inappropriate relationships with female employees? His tendancy to break just about every ethical code in his profession? I know! It's his ability to trick his Board of Ed members into thinking he is a good superintendent, and his charisma among parents, preventing them from seeing how he wastes their tax dollars for his own pleasure. Westport produced one heck of a man in Ryan Sherman.
