Sherry Hill is the proud mother of Marquise Hill. She graduated with a degree in art education from Alabama A&M University in 1979, during which time she belonged to the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. She attended Southern University (SUNO) and the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art. She has ten years of education experience to her credit, in addition to twelve years working with the federal government. One of her proudest achievements is the five years she worked in a juvenile facility, during which she used the story of her son’s life as an example to help mentor troubled youth. Ms. Hill is a member of Toastmasters International. Her experience as a mother, as well as a juvenile counselor III at the New Orleans Police Department, has taught her the value of spending quality time with one’s children to guide them on the right path and find their true selves.
