Cheryl and Tab Barker in the community of El Aulo in 2008

With tremendous gratitude for her many years of generosity and service, we want to thank Cheryl Barker for her service on the Board of Directors for Project Schoolhouse since its inception in 2004.  She has been a dedicated supporter of the organization throughout her tenure and we appreciate her dedication by naming her as our first Board Member Emeritus.

Many residents of Sheridan, Wyoming will have enjoyed the fruits of her labor at the almost annual Sod Farm Festival held in her driveway from 2011 till 2018.   With up to 500 attendees per year, the event was a significant fundraiser for Project Schoolhouse and couldn’t have been possible without her support.  She’s operated Green Carpet Sod in Sheridan Wyoming for over 45 years and it was a perfect place to host that event.

In 2008 she traveled to Nicaragua to attend the inauguration of our very first school project.   The community we stayed in was so taken by her that they named the elementary school in El Aulo, Nicaragua after her.   Finally, in 2020, we succeeded in completing a community water system in that community after all those years.

We want to wish her the very best in all her future endeavors and thank her for supporting this one for so long.

 Thank you Cheryl!
