It’s not uncommon for Eastchester Schools Superintendent Dr. Walter Moran to visit classrooms throughout the District. However, on Tuesday, October 30th, Dr. Moran went from observer to participant.
Students in Steve Borys’ Economics and Government class delved deeper into the role of Westchester County Government with the assistance of County Legislator Damon Maher who shared his expertise with the class.
When the lesson was over, Legislator Maher presented Dr. Moran with a proclamation thanking him for his years of service to the District. Dr. Moran is retiring at the end of the school year.
As Dr. Moran accepted the award, he encouraged the teens to consider public service in schools and government. “It is very important work and as you look toward your future and the kind of service you want to provide professionally, never discount that. People spend hundreds of hours working every year toward the betterment of others.”
Legislator Maher agreed and said, “I enjoy meeting with the students and telling them they can make a difference. This is the best job I have ever had. It is so rewarding.”
One additional honor: Dr. Moran’s name will be on the Westchester County Center Bill Board next Tuesday, November 6th, Election Day.
