Volunteer of the Month
Cherryland Humane Society’s
Cheryl Morgan has been a volunteer since 2008 and is a lover of all animals! However, she has a special place in her heart for her two dogs, Lily and Lady, who are 7 years old and were adopted from CHS! She also has a soft spot for our Director’s dogs, Cooper and Maggie! Cheryl is very helpful at T.C. East Middle School as well and you can often see her talking with people who remember her as an aide in the classroom or being a playground supervisor. She is very supportive of her family and goes to all of her grandkids events.
For nine years Cheryl has helped in many different ways. Her compassion, and love for animals has had her helping with CHS’ Donor Dog Program, volunteer coordination, scheduling volunteers for special events and dog walking. She also helps with laundry and works tirelessly keeping the shelter extremely clean and organized. Every year she has called all volunteers to update their applications and check if they are still active, which is an enormous project! Basically, Cheryl will help wherever she is needed and does it with her wonderful smile!
CHS has surely benefited from Cheryl joining its volunteer community. For her years of dedication helping CHS fulfill its mission, we salute Cheryl as September’s Volunteer of the Month!
If you see this beautiful lady, please tell her congratulations and job well done!
