She goes above and beyond on a daily basis, working to even the playing field within our building for all of these students. Students know that she cares about them and believes in them. She is a role model for all. She is the epitome of a student-centered leader within our building, throughout the district and state." Sheryl has truly led by example in all of her efforts with students and in professional development for herself, and for the role of school counselors everywhere.
