About Sherry's charity: The Rise School of Corpus Christi, is the city’s first and only school dedicated to early education of children with and without disabilities in an inclusive classroom setting with master's level educators and on-staff speech, occupational, physical, and music therapists. Their mission truly is to provide the best possible education to every child, regardless of any disability they may have.
Why Sherry loves her charity: Sherry has a deep connection to The Rise School. One of her sons was born with down syndrome and that is what brought her to The Rise School here in Corpus Christi. She wanted to allow her child the very best education no matter the challenges he might face. She is passionate about the cause they represent and advocate for.
