Sheryl started her career with the IDOC in 1987 and had the opportunity to work with a number of great leaders in corrections.

She has trained and mentored many administrative staff during her years of service.

Her dedication to this facility will be a lasting legacy as she has inspired and encouraged everyone she came in contact with.

This legacy comprises a lifetime of relationships, accomplishments, truths, and values, and it lives on in those whose lives she has touched. 

Leadership, staff, family, and friends came together this week to celebrate her retirement and to wish her well.

She was overwhelmed with gratitude for all the guests that came to celebrate and for the many gifts she received to show our appreciation for her service.

Keeping with tradition at NICI, a callout was made for staff and inmates to line up along Main Street.

A farewell announcement is made over the intercom to recognize the retiree with an applause of thanks for their long-standing service during their final departure.
