THANK YOU, SHERMAN COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD, HALL OF HONOR COMMITTEE, SUPERINTENDENT WES OWENS, JEANIE PEHLKE, MOLLY BELSHE & SHERMAN BOOSTERS! It’s truly an honor to be recognized by fellow citizens for the Sherman County School Hall of Honor! I’m blessed to be in a community where opportunities to do my share are many! Mindful that I achieved nothing on my own accord, in one way or another over the years, many people, including my family, influenced, inspired and played a part in my contributions to the county community and I am grateful. The Hall of Honor program is a worthy reflection of our history and an inspiration. Thank you for a wonderful celebration! ~Sherry Kaseberg.
