Campus Champion

As the secretary for the largest undergraduate physical education department in the U.S., Sherry Snell has devoted the last 31 years to advising distraught students, creating course schedules, and making faculty members’ jobs easier through her meticulous attention to detail and uncompromising standard of excellence. SUNY Cortland loses much more than Sherry’s encyclopedic knowledge of the Park Center when she retires on Sept. 29 after 37 years at the College. She unselfishly made everyone in the Physical Education Department feel like family and, in doing so, has been a campus champion for decades.
