  • Alumni Spotlight - Cheryl Herrin Rawlings '74

March 24, 2023

This month we’re shining the spotlight on Cheryl Herrin Rawlings '74 as she reflects on her Midway University experience.

Favorite Midway Experience or Memory: I loved Ms. Parrish. I took Tennis and she was excellent. I loved Ann Botts and Mrs. Lehman, they were excellent English teachers. I still keep in touch with Mrs. Botts. I loved riding my bike all over town with friends. I made many lifelong friends at Midway, people I’m still close to.

What Midway Means to Me: Thinking of Midway brings back so many fond memories. I went on to Morehead for my final two years, but the friendships I made at Midway have lasted my whole life. The teachers at Midway laid the foundation I needed for my career. Midway felt like a family  to me. The faculty cared deeply about the students and were always ready to listen and help.

Where are You Now: Cheryl is now retired from teaching, however, she remains active as the president of the Nicholas County Retired Teachers Association, while also serving on the Nicholas County School Board and a citizen representative for Nicholas County in the Bluegrass Area Development District.
