WILL TYRELL (Term 2023-2024)
Will Tyrell’s experience with the Sherburne-Earlville Central School District started in the Fall of 1991, when he moved from Lowville to North Norwich in his freshman year. S-E quickly became home.
Throughout high school, Will developed lifelong friendships and acquaintances. After graduating from S-E, he studied at the State University
of New York, College of Technology at Delhi and earned an Applied Associates of Science degree in Veterinary Technology. After earning his degree, Will started his career in biomedical research at The Harvard Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery, Harvard Medical School, in Boston. He was a surgical research technician and worked with research fellows in developing minimally invasive surgical techniques.
After four years at Harvard, Will became the laboratory manager for The Experimental Cardiovascular Interventional (ECI) Laboratory at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston. The ECI Laboratory was a joint venture between the Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to develop and study interventional cardiovascular technology and techniques.
During the spring of 2002, Will was given an opportunity to move back to the area to help run a family business. For the next 10 years, he helped his parents operate the family automobile dealerships, Smith Ford LLC and The Giant’s Warehouse LLC, which became a staple with the community for their service and charitable support of local organizations. After his parents’ retirement in 2012, Will started his career at Chenango Sales in Greene, where he is currently the General Manager and has been named Nominee Successor by Ford Motor Company. Over the past 7 years, he also started two businesses that are operated with the help and support of his wife, Veronica, and their daughters, Addison and Marley. Those businesses are W&B Powerwashing LLC and Tyrrell’s Tents & Rentals LLC.
Community involvement is Will’s main priority as he believes the only way you can be successful is if the community around you is successful. In the past, he has been involved with many clubs and community organizations. He was a member of the Norwich Lions Club and the Norwich Rotary Club (president for 2 years) and is the president of the Sherburne Area Little league. Will has been coaching within SALL for the past 6 years, with the hope that he has taught kids how to play and love the game.
Will took an opportunity to serve S-E by joining the Board of Education in September 2023 and hopes to bring a unique view to the board. He is not a formal educator, nor will he ever be, but he brings an open view that has both a scientific and business approach. He will question what he does not understand, applaud what he should, and stand up for what is right.
Will’s two daughters are coming up through this school district, and he wants them to have the best opportunity to succeed – just as he did.
Will believes through the hard work and cooperation of students, parents/guardians, educators, administration, taxpayers, and the community in general, Sherburne-Earlville can give our children an amazing opportunity to succeed in life.
