Question: Did you know that actor William H. Macy graduated from high school in Allegany County?

william-h-macyIt’s true! William H. Macy moved to Maryland at age nine when his father took over a Cumberland, Maryland-based insurance company and he graduated from Allegany High School in 1968. He was junior and senior class president in high school. Afterwards, he studied veterinary medicine at Bethany College in West Virginia. By his own admission a “wretched student,” he transferred to Goddard College and became involved in theatre.
