Mr. Wallace K. Sherertz
Upon graduation from HSU, Mr.
Wally Sherertz became a high school math teacher, textbook co-author, and,
later, teacher association executive director. All the while, he actively
performed in principal and supporting roles in regional and stock theater,
playing the lead in shows like Shenandoah, The Taming of
the Shrew, and The Most Happy Fella. About 25 years ago, he and
his wife Peggy (Graham ’62 B.S.) moved to New York, NY, so Mr. Sherertz could
pursue full-time his passion for acting. Since then, under the stage name of
Michael Shelle, he has appeared in the international tour of Camelot (starring
Richard Harris) as Merlin and other supporting roles, in the first national
tour of Titanic, in a variety of productions in New York City, and
in regional theaters throughout the country. Mr. Sherertz continues to perform
and sing and is a writing tutor at the Borough of Manhattan Community College.
At HSU, Mr. Sherertz was a Cowboy Band soloist, was a founding member of Tau
Alpha Phi, and acted in theatre productions.
