Stuttard, Decker Lead WCS Class of 2016
Samuel Stuttard is the valedictorian and Alexis Decker is the salutatorian of the Waterville Central School Class of 2016. Stuttard, son of Karen and Benjamin Stuttard of Oriskany Falls, is a member of the National Honor Society. In addition to his outstanding academic record, Stuttard has participated in numerous clubs and musical groups, including French Club, Art Club, Concert Band and Chorus. Outside of school, Stuttard has been active with the Center State Figure Skating Club. Stuttard called French teacher Miyo Wratten, who is also advisor to the French club, a great influence. He said he is also grateful for the positive influence of his art teacher and art club advisor, Mary Beth Maguire. Stuttard plans to major in either film or animation with a minor in English or foreign language. He has been accepted to and is considering Colgate University or Rochester Institute of Technology. Decker, daughter of Karen and Jamie Decker of Waterville, is also a member of the National Honor Society. In addition to her outstanding academic record, Decker has been a three-sport athlete participating in soccer, basketball and softball. Decker said she is particularly fond of her time in Mike Ryan’s English class. She said she is also thankful for her coach and teacher, Larry Stockwell. Decker will continue her education at Hobart-William Smith in Geneva. She plans to major in math and computer science with an eye towards a career in nanotechnology.

Quinn Grateful For ‘The Voice’
Ryan Quinn is hitting the ground running after his time on ‘The Voice’ by keeping his popularity from the show going. “You don’t have very long after you’re off the show until the TV bubble that you’re in bursts,’’ said Quinn, a graduate of Clinton Central School. “You have to capitalize on the exposure you’ve received as quickly as possible.” Quinn was a contestant on NBC’s ‘The Voice’, competing in the Blind Auditions, Battle Rounds, Knockout Rounds and Live Playoffs. After his performance in the Live Playoffs, Quinn did not receive enough votes from the viewing audience to keep him in the Top 12 and his coach did not save him. Quinn was sent home on the April 13 episode of the show. “I obviously had an open mind going into it, about going home or staying,’’ he said. “But, I don’t know if I really expected it. So, it was a blow. I didn’t feel great after the results, but my team is just so strong. Every person on that team is so good that it made it a little better knowing that,” Quinn said.  For the Complete Article, Click Here to Subscribe!

Board Approves Solar Plan
After months of consideration, the Town of Kirkland Planning Board approved Hamilton College’s proposed Solar Array Ground Mounted System plan at their meeting April 25. Hamilton College had requested the Planning Board’s OK on the 11.9 acre Solar Array Ground Mounted System, which will be in a pair of fields off Campus Road and include 8,370 solar power-gathering panels. The Elmsford-based SolarCity Corporation will build the solar farm at their own expense and then sell the electricity to the college. For the Complete Article, Click Here to Subscribe!
