During the varsity girls' basketball home game last Friday,
Jan. 20, Ed McBain was celebrated in front of a crowd of family, friends
and fellow Knights supporters for his long-standing dedication
to Middleburgh Central Schools and its student-athletes.
An alumnus of MCS, Mr. McBain has been described by many as a
"fixture" in the community. His tireless volunteer efforts and
enthusiastic cheers for the district's student-athletes -- win
or lose -- have spanned decades. Some of his contributions have
included serving as a frequent volunteer, participating as a
member of the MCS Booster Club, operating the scoreboard,
working as a timer for track and field, chaperoning home games,
attending games near and far -- and more.
Mr. McBain was praised in a letter from Superintendent
Michele Weaver for his unwaverving devotion to his alma mater
and his work toward making the district a better place to be.
MCS Athletic Director Gregg Johns was joined by MCS Athletics
Booster Club President CJ Smith and Mr. McBain's family to present
him with a certificate that named him Middleburgh Central Schools' "Number
One Fan," a winter jacket he could put to use to show off his
Knights pride and a festive cake to celebrate his birthday
earlier this month.
The district would like to share its gratitude for Mr.
McBain's countless volunteer efforts and his reliable,
enthusiastic support of MCS over the years.
