ACCORD – A 2008 graduate of Rondout Valley High School was killed on Sunday while serving in Afghanistan.

Army Sgt. Shawn Farrell, 24, of Accord was a member of the 10th Mountain Division based at Ford Drum, NY.

Rondout Valley Superintendent Rosario Agostaro extended the district’s condolences to the family.

“This is an extremely sad day for the entire Rondout Valley community as we learned that Rondout Valley graduate Sgt. Shawn Farrell was killed while serving his country in Afghanistan,” Agostaro said.  “The district would like to send its condolences to his family,”

Farrell’s body is expected to be returned to the United States later this week.
