Cobleskill-Richmondville’s school superintendent said Friday that the death of 2014 graduate Courtney E. Mahar in fiery crash Wednesday on the state Thruway has left the Schoharie County community heartbroken and in shock and grief.
“I didn’t know her personally, but I know of her,” Superintendent Carl J. Mummenthey said. “Courtney was a bright, energetic and charismatic student. She loved volleyball and played it here when she was in high school. She had a very creative mind which it doesn’t surprise me that she went into art and design and architecture.”
