3. Her day begins at 6 a.m.
Cheryl coordinates staff schedules and kitchen operations for PFS breakfast and lunch.
4. Students love her.
“That’s the reason I’m here. Because of the students. Every year students say, ‘Miss Cheryl, you can’t leave until I graduate.’ Those four years turn into another four years, and 29 years later, I’m still here.”
5. She can name all of the dining hall favorites in under five seconds.
“Muffin Day – chocolate chip is tops! Chicken nuggets. Tacos. And chicken cheddar wraps.”
6. You won’t believe her favorite food.
“Vegetables. I’m health conscious.”

“When I’m not working in the kitchen, you can find me cheering on our athletic teams. I’m the wild one at the games.”
8. She’s a grandmother.
“I enjoy spending time with my grandkids. They all live in N.J. I have two granddaughters, four grandsons and another grandchild on the way!”
9. She’s close to her family.
“I have six siblings, and we all have kids. We do a family trip every year. Next year we are taking a seven-day cruise to the Bahamas.”
