Unhappy News

Trustee Emeritus John Porteus died 9/11/2007 at Wesley Health Care in Saratoga where he had lived since 2001. John was a teacher, guidance counselor, school psychologist, and school administrator for nearly 50 years, retiring in 1974 from Schoharie Central School. He was a Trustee of the Mary Beatrice Cushing Memorial Library (Schoharie Free Library) for many years and served as Board President. Even after he "retired," John was always around to pick up books, provide practical advice, and talk with everyone who came through the doors.
