Excited to announce that I've been named to the National Trust for Historic Preservation's "40 Under 40: People Saving Places" inaugural list! I’m so honored to be part of this group of amazingly gifted people from across the country and a variety of backgrounds who are redefining what it means to save places.
The overarching goal of my work has always been to develop the subject of music history as not only a relevant theme in the field of historic preservation but an important and necessary one. Being accepted and acknowledged for that on a national level is validating! -Sheryl
"A new initiative from the National Trust, 40 Under 40: People Saving Places honors 40 movers and shakers—all age 40 and under—from a variety of backgrounds and industries. These innovators are expanding our view of what it means to save places and tell America’s full history.
All honorees were chosen by the National Trust for their significant impact on historic preservation and related fields such as architecture, community activism, storytelling, and business, as well as for their contributions to the public’s understanding of why places matter."
