She was nominated for this award by Chair Randy Larsen, Assistant Chair Patricia Muisener, Kimberly Read, Christina Nelson and Victoria Mothershed. They share, "Cheryl is absolutely a team player. She is always willing to pitch in and help with anything. Cheryl is congenial and approachable. Her commitment to supporting the members of our department – student, faculty and staff – makes her a go-to person by everyone who needs help with purchasing. And because she always takes the initiative to find solutions and answers to any questions asked of her, many people seek her advice. She never shuffles people to another person or phone number. Over the last couple of years, Cheryl has demonstrated considerable initiative in her professional development seeking learning and training opportunities. She is a glowing example of USF’s value of discovery, creativity and intellectual attainment."
