Cheryl Miller, a professor in Trocaire College’s Catherine McAuley School of Nursing, was recently honored by New York State Sen. Patrick M. Gallivan (R-C-I, Elma). The special recognition thanked Cheryl for her service to the residents of Wyoming County through 40 years of employment at the Wyoming County Community Hospital in Warsaw.
Cheryl began her career with the Wyoming County Community Health System in 1974, holding positions as registered nurse, director of Nursing and director of Regulatory Affairs before retiring. She was also a member of the hospital’s Board of Managers from 2003-2011 and was instrumental in the development of the clinical nursing ladder program.
In addition, Cheryl served as president of the Wyoming Community Hospital Foundation from 2003-2015. She was one of the visionaries behind its successful ONE capital campaign and was actively involved in countless fundraising events sponsored by the Foundation in support of the services, programs and patient care provided to the community by the hospital and nursing facility.
“In the faithful performance of her duties and responsibilities, Cheryl Miller’s ongoing efforts and notable achievements have significantly contributed to bettering the quality of life in her community,” Gallivan’s proclamation reads. “Rare indeed is the impressive dedication shown by an individual for the benefit of others which Cheryl Miller has displayed throughout her life.”
Though Cheryl is now enjoying her retirement from the hospital, she continues to teach several courses at Trocaire. Congratulations go out to her for this honor!
