Gananda Athletes Receive Proclamation of Accomplishment

When the town supervisor shows up, it’s serious. But when two show? That takes the Proclamation of Accomplishment to a new level.

Then again, several Gananda athletes did just that in their world of sports this past fall and winter and that’s why Macedon Town Supervisor Kim Leonard and Walworth Town Supervisor Mike Donalty were at Ruben A. Cirillo High School on Thursday morning. 

The supervisors were there to recognize the achievements of cheerleaders and swimmers for the 2024 fall season and 2024-25 winter sports season. 

The Gananda cheerleaders were honored for winning the Section V Class D1 team championship and advancing to the state championships. Peyton Conner of the boys swim team was recognized for his Section V Class individual championships and two relay teams also were honored. 

And from the fall sports season, Sydney Richards of the girls swim team was recognized for her Section V Class B individual title. 

Parents and classmates joined the celebration, where athletes were greeted with official proclamations by the Town Supervisors. 

Congratulations to our Gananda athletes who excel in their field of play to win with class and dignity and make everyone #GanandaProud!
