Retired Penn Manor teacher Sherilyn Schock passed away recently after a courageous fight with cancer.
Sherilyn taught fourth and fifth grades at Creswell and Letort Elementary Schools for 30 years until retiring in 2002. Upon her retirement, she faithfully volunteered at Letort weekly until her illness forced her to stop in 2015.
To honor Sherilyn and her service to students and the community, a scholarship has been established in her name with an anonymous matching donation of up to $5,000. The $500 scholarship will be given each year to a deserving Penn Manor graduate who attended Letort Elementary School.
Through generosity of community and retiree donors, the scholarship has reached endowment status. Every May, a graduating senior will be awarded $500 to pursue post-secondary education.
Thank you for honoring Sherilyn, a remarkable teacher and volunteer who was a tremendous asset to the Letort community.
