One of the most important functions of the Hall of Fame organization is honoring outstanding student athletes. Ed Romance always felt that the combination of outstanding ability and performance in sports and classroom was so unique that it deserved special recognition and honor. We have has a great succession of honorees, and Cheryl Darrup continues that fine tradition.

Cheryl ranks fifth in her class, and is a member of the National Honor Society, testifying to her academic achievements. She is class secretary and student council president, which mirrors her leadership abilities. She is her parish representative to the Diocesan Synod, a lector at St. John’s Church, the winner of the Mount Carmel Legion Women’s Auxiliary Americanism Award, and an exchange student in Holland as testimony to her community and religious involvements.

But she is also an outstanding athlete. Cheryl will letter in softball, basketball, track and cross country as a senior.

She is captain of the softball, basketball and cross country teams. Voted the MVP of the 85-86 basketball team, she was a member of the Schuylkill League All-Stars (Cross Country) in both 85 and 86. She is the only 3-time qualifier for the state cross country meet in school history. A terrific athlete and student. Exactly the kind of person Ed Romance had in mind for this honor.
