TRIBUTE TO CHERYL HESER OF ROSEBUD COUNTY
Mr. DAINES. Mr. President, today I have the distinct honor of recognizing Cheryl Heser of Rosebud County for her passion for education and her dedication to preserving American history as a living history presenter for Montanans across the Treasure State.
Cheryl has served her community as an educator for many years teaching high school English, Spanish, and journalism, and she managed a K-12 school library. She is also a published author and served as the director of the Rosebud County Library in Forsyth, Montana for 17 years. Cheryl earned statewide recognition for her esteemed radio program and was named the 2014 Librarian of the Year by the Montana Library Association.
Even after her retirement, Cheryl’s dedication to education and passion for storytelling continues through her work as a living history presenter. Cheryl travels to Montana communities to utilize her knack for storytelling and skilled research to educate Montanans of all ages and preserve American history by portraying the lives of historical figures like Dolly Madison and Annie Oakley.
It is my distinct honor to recognize Cheryl Heser for her passion for education and her work to preserve American history. I have no doubt Cheryl’s unique and captivating living history presentations have influenced Montanans of all ages. Keep up the great work Cheryl, you make Montana proud!
