Sheri Switzer Memorial Scholarship

Requirements: North Montgomery student, majoring in math, technology, engineering, or education

The Sheri Switzer Memorial Scholarship was established in 2017 in memory and in honor of Mrs. Sheri Switzer, who tragically lost her life in an auto accident. Sheri had a love of God, a positive outlook on life, and loved her family and friends with all her heart.

Those who knew Sheri recognized her passion and love for her students immediately. Sheri taught math at Northridge Middle School for 10 years. While this was her chosen subject, she brought much more than that to her students. Sheri was their cheerleader and friend who provided lessons about the environment, gardening, and most importantly, being kind. Her Pi Day celebration, held annually on March 14th, was a favorite for many students.

To honor Sheri's memory and her commitment to education, this scholarship is awarded to North Montgomery High School graduates pursuing a degree in math, technology, engineering, or education. The Sheri Switzer Memorial Scholarship is for one year only and not renewable. This award is for tuition purposes only.
