What is a Firecracker? It’s someone who’s tough, exciting, and energetic and that describes Sheryl Mendoza to a tee. She started off the year as one of our Mover and Shaker Award Winners and moved on to teach at several of our Oriana House sites, produce her own television show “Akron Today,” and has joined us as one of our H.O.P.E. Warrior coaches. She’s on a mission to help Moving Beyond Hope change families’ lives! That’s why she deserves to be named our December Firecracker Award Winner!
