Meet Cherri

Workforce Challenge

Cherri worked as a Materials and Production Planner at a factory in Dewitt until the Plant moved production to China. Although Cherri had a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, she lacked the Teaching Certificate that would allow her to teach business classes at a high school or college level.

Workforce Solution

Cherri had done all her research on what she needed to do to get a teaching certificate and found that the University of Nebraska at Kearney had a great program. Cherri co-enrolled as a Greater Nebraska WIA Dislocated Worker and Trade participant. She started classes and is now finishing up her student teaching. She will graduate in December, 2010

Outcomes & Benefits

During this education adventure Cherri has faced the challenges of cancer and treatments, plus relocating her family to York, Nebraska for her husband's job. Cherri has always kept a positive attitude and her grades and college performance have been more than outstanding.
