Following the SCSAA board approval April 1, 2018, of a $2,500 matching grant to SCIG and a subsequent letter campaign to Sidney High alumni, SCSAA has received nearly $10,000 in gifts designated for the Sidney Center children’s park improvements. In matching the first $2,500 donated, SCSAA will present a $5,000 check to United Way which will match the $5,000 and forward $10,000 to SCIG. The Alumni Association will then forward the additional $7,500 in alumni donations to United Way which will match $2,500 resulting in a second $10,000 donation to SCIG. This fund-raising campaign, ending September 29, marks one of the Association’s most successful community involvement projects along with its impetus n creating the Sidney Veterans Memorial Park and its support of Library’s digitization of the historical copies of the Sidney Record-Enterprise, the precursor to the current Tri-Town News.

The SCSAA 12th Annual Wall of Fame Keynote Address

16th Annual Sports Hall of Fame Induction Weekend

by Chuck D’Imperio

Friday Sept. 28 - Alumni Hall of Fame Football Game

Today I have been asked to say a few words as we celebrate this year’s newest inductees into our Sidney High School Wall of Fame.

Long-time rivals Walton versus Sidney Warriors At halftime, the Inductees and Legacy team, (the 1997-98 NYS Class C Boys Basketball Champions) will be officially presented to the school and community. Post Game Social held at the VFW for alumni and guests.

Wall of Fame. Sounds pretty important, doesn’t it?

Saturday Sept. 29 - Dinner and Awards Presentation

Well, it is. For all of us who came through the ranks of dear old Sidney High, we were told (by our parents, teachers, and mentors) that we were special, that we were unique, that we were a one-of a-kind. I know that I was always told that by my teachers in school. I didn’t really know what that meant. I just felt like an ordinary kid who couldn’t wait to get out of school and go home and play with my little green army men in the dirt pile that was in our back yard. But as I got older, and graduation loomed ever closer, I think I really did start to feel special, and unique. Eventually, this message that was hammered into my brain from 4th grade, and 6th grade and 8th grade and 12th grade really did start to sink in. And that feeling wellarmed me for life beyond Sidney’s horizons, that feeling and the foundation I received at Sidney school prepared me for just about anything that lie ahead, just over the Sidney Bridge. And for that, I am thankful. Now as I near 70 years old, I can look back at great satisfaction of a life well-lived and a purpose wellserved. I can realize that it really all did stem from my early beginnings at Sidney Central School. Con’t on page 4

Keynote Address by Chuck D’Imperio... continued And that is what our Wall of Fame is all about. To illuminate the fact that this school, this proving ground served us all well in our early years. It was decided that a Wall of Fame would be created not only to celebrate the many great lives, fascinating successes and great American stories that sprang from the halls of Sidney’s school district. The wall is also intended to show clearly to today’s students and in fact students in the future, that great things can happen once you leave Sidney schools, exciting things, promising careers, and paths will open up all over the world for you to do great things, important things. Things that will be your legacy. And that is why the more than 60 inductees to date are represented on the walls of Sidney High School to teach by example, inspire by the narrative and to urge each student to live a full and fulfilling life. There is no better way to explain this than to simply review some of the truly remarkable American stories that have come from Sidney Schools over the decades. So let’s take a look back at some of the people who have been honored with this stemmed selection. As I read some of their stories remember one thing, no matter what the accolades, no matter what the achievement that deemed these people worthy of the Wall of Fame, they all started out the same. The girls couldn’t wait to get out of school and go home and play with their friends; and many of the boys, I suspect, couldn’t wait to get home and play with their little green soldiers in their own backyard dirt pile. Myron J. Kipp comes up first. He was from the class of 1901. I knew MJ Kipp. He was a very old man when I met him in the early 1950s. When my Dad bought Kipp’s store and changed it into Don’s Super Market in 1954, the oldest business man in Sidney was turning over his store to the then-youngest business man in Sidney. But MMJ was not just an old man selling soap and coffee. He was a towering figure in the birth of the new Sidney, having served on virtually

March of Classes...

every civic committee there was, including Postmaster and President of the Board of Education. Many old-timers will tell you that without MJ Kipp, there would be no Sidney today. His story is amazing. Read it on his Wall of Fame plaque. Walt Johnson was a farmer. He graduated from Sidney in 1935 and never left. How many of us bought his corn, rode his scary Halloween hay wagon and enjoyed his stories? I know I did. But he was a farmer of a different type. Involved, important, innovative and committed to the future of his beloved Sidney. Sidney’s Citizen of the Year in 1984, Walt lived by this simple credo: You don’t live your life for yourself; you live it for others. His story is remarkable, and it is all on his Wall of Fame plaque. There can be few doubters that Jack Deuel (Class of 1943) was the man who brought the arts and culture to Sidney. A clever and creative genius, Jack was the founding director of the Tri-Town Theatre and he personally guided the proverbial cast of thousands on stage and under the lights in well over 150 musicals and plays over nearly a half century. Oh, how we enjoyed our nights in the theatre when the lights went down. The orchestra began playing and fruits of Jack Deuel’s genius played out on our local stages. A wonderful life. Read it. It is all on his plaque. John Uhorchak (Class of 1971) is a real American hero. There are many on our Wall. We don’t remember the names of many of our military encounters over the last several years, but one we do know, Black Hawk Down. We may know it from the movie or the book, and the thought of it still sends shivers down our spine. When U.S. Army helicopters were shot down and crashed in Mogadishu, Somalia on October 3, 1993, it is fair to say that all hell broke loose. The resulting casualties from injuries sustained in the crash and from hand to hand combat made this event one of the most tragic and saddest days in the history of the US Army. But one man among many rose to the


5

Keynote Address by Chuck D’Imperio... occasion to perform heroically for his fallen comrades. That man was John Uhorchak, a kid from Sidney High School, Class of 1971. In a short period of 34 hours, Col. Uhorchak performed more than 30 emergency surgeries on the ground as the only orthopedic surgeon in Mogadishu. He saved lives. He is a hero. And his story is on his plaque. Read about it. Nancy Sue ‘Haynes’ Burns (Class of 1956) faced many obstacles in her life. This cheery and positive woman stared down polio at age seven, at a time when polio was the great scourge of young people across the land. Although she emerged from this battle with a small degree of paralysis, little Nancy went on to lead a big, big life. For 30 years she was the editor of our local newspaper bringing us up to speed on fun things and important issues down through the decades. Every town needs a newspaper. And ours came from the talent of Nancy Sue Burns, a woman who continues to give back to her community to this day. Wherever I went in this country after leaving Sidney in 1967 I always got a subscription to the Sidney paper as a Christmas gift. I still get it today. Nancy lived a life of rich fullness. And it is all on her Wall of Fame plaque. Read it. Charlie Downin (Class of 1941) was the epitome of a superb volunteerism. His petri dish was Sidney Center. He lived there, was involved there and was always looking to enhance the citizens of Sidney’s sister village. Charlie was a veteran’s best friend. He served in World War II and received a chest-full of medals for his bravery in battle, including the Bronze Star for his meritorious action at the D-Day invasion. Charlie never gave up on our area veterans. He was tireless. As commander of Sidney American Legion, he raised thousands of dollars to go to local veteran’s causes. And in his final years Charlie became a resident of the Oxford Vets Home. But still, he never gave up. In the last months of his life this old hero could be seen rolling his wheelchair up and down the hallways of the Vets home delivering candy and a cheerful smile to

the veterans who could no longer get around. His story will give you goosebumps. Read it. It is on his plaque. Dear Cherie Stevens (Class of 1970), was one of the brightest shining stars in Schoharie County where she made a life and career until her passing just a month ago (June 16, 2018). Cherie, this little girl from Bridge Street in Sidney, made an incredible, indelible impression on the lives of thousands in her adopted county. For 35 years she was a role model to students who crossed her path at SUNY Cobleskill where she was an administrator. When floods ravaged her county in 2011, it was Cherie who was tapped to chair the Schoharie County Flood Relief Committee, raising $500,000 to help lift the souls and the spirits of those in great need. She founded a completely volunteer organization called Marathon for a Better Life to raise money for area cancer patients strapped for funds. Through her grit and determination and armed with a winning personality and impossible-to-ignore smile, our dear Cheri raised over $1,000,000 for nearly 1,000 cancer patients. She left us far too soon, but this shining star will never go out. And her story, a great American story, is all on her Wall of Fame plaque. Read it. That is just a few of the honorees who have been celebrated since 2005. And there are many others, of course. Paul Beames (Class of 1963) who has dedicated virtually his entire life to the Boy Scouts of America. Bruce Wilhelm (Class of 1977) the young man who almost single-handedly brought our hospital back to Sidney, Bob Rowlands, who was the first educator ever put on the Wall of Fame. How many lives did he touch over a quarter of a century? Too many to count. Including mine. Pat Greene (Class of 1953) which was never heard to say no to a request to join a civic or community organization. Dr. Elliott Danforth fixed our breaks and scrapes, we bought our clothes from Wayne King (Class of 1952) and we watched with tears in our eyes as our littles ones danced on stage under the guidance of Andrea ‘Kozak’ Wakeman (Class of 1970).

But we follow his travels online and see him waving his arms in front of a serious looking orchestra in such faraway storybook places like China and Russia. Although we don’t quite know what Doug does, he is internationally respected and admired and has carried forth the tenets of a Sidney upbringing around the world. It is true. Read his plaque. And last, but not least, Carlos Washington (Class of 1976) Sidney’s singing cowboy. His path out of high school took him to thousands of miles away from the old Sidney Bridge. Today Carlos continues to mentor young people, attend national rodeo events and continues to sing his song of America to adoring crowds throughout the West. These and many more names are perfect examples of who is on our Sidney Wall of Fame. Exemplary lives born from the exemplary upbringing they found right here in our beautiful little town and our great Sidney Central School. Today we add five more distinguished names to our Wall. And I am sure, when you hear their backgrounds; you will agree that these also all represent great American stories. And if you don’t believe me, stick around after the luncheon and read it on their plaques. Thank you.
