Pay it Forward: Sherrie Vanderhorst

Jerry Zucker Middle School of Science seems like a second home to Sherrie Vanderhorst. She's a rockstar volunteer that faculty and staff just can't do without.

"Ms. Vanderhorst is our utility player," said School Secretary Mary Knox. "She does everything for us. Always with that beautiful smile. And we're just very very grateful for her."

As students arrived to learn, we arrived to Pay it Forward.

From answering phones, assisting parents and teachers, to chaperoning and also chairing the PTO board, you'd think Ms. Vanderhorst may be hiding her Superwoman cape.

"I just like doing it," she said.

Hopefully she also likes her $500 Visa gift card - a small token of appreciation from those who appreciate the deeds of a very special volunteer.

"We just love her," said one staff member.

"I appreciate them, too," said Vanderhorst. "I love them."
