Sherry is proof that retirees are active and vital in our community. Sherry is, to put it simply, truly amazing.
Sherry is the Program Coordinator for the Elite Program, past Vice President of METEC board of directors, current secretary of South Side Mission Board of Directors and the current Secretary of the NAACP branch. Sherry founded Hope Renewed Youth Conference Inc., which began a mentoring program and now is focused on providing scholarships for elementary and secondary education and law enforcement students.
For every year of financial support, students must commit to a year working in Peoria Public Schools or the Peoria Police Department. The goal is to retain local talent and to increase diversity in these two fields. Let’s thank Sherry Cannon for her initiative and welcome her to the 25 Women in Leadership.
