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 is being established in her name with an anonymous matching donation of up to $5000. The $500 scholarship will be given each year to a deserving Penn Manor graduate who attended Letort Elementary School.
Those wishing to honor Sherilyn’s life and memory and continue her legacy of serving students may contribute to the Sherilyn Schock Memorial Scholarship Fund, administered through the Penn Manor Education Foundation.
Checks can be sent to PMEF, P.O. Box 1001, Millersville PA, 17551. Please write “Sherilyn Schock Scholarship” on the check. To contribute in other ways, please contact PMEF director Anne Kinderwater Carroll at 717-872-9500, xt. 2332.
Thank you for honoring Sherilyn, a remarkable teacher and volunteer who was a tremendous asset to the Letort community.
