Sherry’s strong vision of how to attain the goals of Rockwood 2000 as described in the organization’s charter lives on as work toward beautification, historic preservation, and education continues. While she is no longer an active member, her advice and council is often sought by those who attempt to follow her example of commitment and service to our community. Maurice Grief presented her with a plaque and unveiled a paver in her honor. Mayor Watts presented her with a key to the city.
