Hartman honored with Hall of Flags dedication

December 21, 2018

The Cobleskill-Richmondville Central School District and the Cobleskill Rotary Club recently honored longtime C-R educator Blair Hartman by dedicating the C-RHS Hall of Flags to his memory.

Hartman was a math teacher of nearly 30 years before his passing in 2016, as well as a Rotarian and considerable supporter of the C-R student-exchange program.

Blair impacted the lives of thousands of students as an educator and hundreds as a Rotarian,” said C-R Board of Education President Bruce Tryon. “What many of us didn’t realize were the many things that Blair did behind the scenes, unnoticed. But that’s who he was – he didn’t care about acknowledgement.”

Former C-R Superintendent Sam Shevat said that “while Blair was foremost a recognized teacher, he contributed to and enriched almost every aspect of the district’s co-curricular activities. May his legacy live on in our hearts through this wonderful dedication.”

Those entering the high school through the Hall of Flags will be greeted by a plaque with Hartman’s likeness and an inscription that reads:

“For his many years of dedicated service to CRCS students through his unending support of their activities. Students throughout the world remember him for his sponsorship of the Rotary Student Exchange Program.”
