Many people on campus know Cheryl Gamble. You can find her office is the HPER building and you can also find her at almost every sporting event. Cheryl is a secretary of the athletic department, but is more like the glue that keeps everything organized.
Although she might have thought it was the end of the world, she ended up graduating with twenty-three kids in her class and married her high school sweet heart.
Cheryl’s job may look like she just sits behind a desk, but she is way more involved than you think, “I love sports, so it’s easy to get involved and help the teams. Right now I am currently helping with the volleyball national tournament and I will also help with the basketball national tournament.”
Cheryl gets involved with the national tournament because she loves sports so much.
Cheryl will also help keep track of athletes grades, “that can be very time consuming and it takes a lot of work.”
She also is involved is helping coaches set up their end of the year banquets. She is currently helping with the volleyball team’s banquet this weekend.
“Jerry Schmutte and I have built a good relationship. I just go with it, and I just do what he needs me to do.”
Although it may seem like Cheryl does a lot of work, she loves doing it.
“I just love my job. My life revolves around my kids and my job,” she said.
When Cheryl isn’t working to help the athletic department at Morningside, she is off riding motorcycles with her husband. Most people may be surprised to see Cheryl on the back of a Harley, but it is a way for her to get away.
“My husband and I have ridden all the way to Alaska and down to the Florida Keys. The ride was amazing and we saw so many wild animals. It wasn’t as cold as you might think, we do have heated jackets, but the cold just didn’t affect us.”
She also likes to spend time with her grandchildren who are six, five, and three. Along with being the glue to the athletic department, she is the glue to her family as well.
If you wanted to take the time out of your day and just say hi to Cheryl, her door is always open and she always welcomes people with a smile.
