A Donation to the Dave Root Memorial Fund
The Williamsville Sports Boosters presented a $10,449 check to Superintendent Don Beard at the varsity basketball game Friday night as a donation to the Dave Root Memorial Fund. The sports boosters sold T-shirts and sweatshirts in honor of Superintendent Root this past year. The Sherman and Williamsville communities were very supportive and, due to their generosity, this gracious donation was able to be made to the fund. Superintendent Root was a huge proponent of the Sports Boosters and supported all of their efforts. How the money will be used has yet to be determined.
