Sheri Crawford '98

From BHS class of '98, to Midland University, to caring for others as a nurse, Sheri Crawford feels her experience at BPS prepared her to be proud of what she has and what she’s worked for. Being a proud Badger, Sheri now gets to cheer on her two kids who are now in the same school system she grew up in.

"I have lived in Bennington my whole life and cannot believe the changes. Some good, some bad. It will be very interesting to see what the future holds for Bennington!"
