Sheri Williamson

Vice President — [email protected]

I am originally from Champaign, where I have volunteered at various non-profits and social service agencies. I graduated from the School of Social Work at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a master’s degree. During my master’s program – and in the years that have followed – I have provided financial wellness education to social work students and providers so they can provide additional assistance to their clients. I am the Board Chair at WEFT Champaign 90.1 FM, I have my own public affairs radio show, and I am president of the Unit 4 District PTA Council. I am passionate about serving my community – and am especially interested in supporting efforts to support the immigration population.
