Cheryl Meier is a lifelong resident of Vernal with the exception of a few years while acquiring her education on the Wasatch Front. She is married to Brian Meier and they have two children, Tyler and Ashlyn.
When her children started school, Cheryl became involved by volunteering in the classroom, serving as PTA President and served as Chairman of the Community councils at Ashley Elementary, Uintah Middle School and Uintah High School. Cheryl has served on the Trees for Charity Committee including as chairman for 3 years, the Holly Days Committee as volunteer coordinator and was an Ambassador for Make a Wish Foundation for the Uintah Basin Sector.
Cheryl has been a member of Uintah Recreation Board of Directors for the last 6 years and recently was appointed to the Uintah County Planning and Zoning Commission. She belongs to the Dinah-Mites, Goodwill Ambassadors for the Chamber of Commerce. She has served in many capacities in her Church but her favorite callings are the ones where she is involved with the Youth.
While she and Bryan were raising their children, she had the opportunity to coach them in every sport they played, hoping they would find their passion. Ultimately they chose to play tennis and ride mountain bikes, two things she had no desire to do, but, since she loves a challenge, she became the designated mom for both High School Boys and Girls tennis teams. As she watched her son mountain bike and loved what he did she became team director to a 40 rider team. At the end of 2019 she took over as head coach. In 2020 there were 83 kids on the team and 2021 team had to be capped at 100. At the 2020 State Race Cheryl was selected has Head Coach of the Year for 2020.
Cheryl has a passion and a love to serve in many capacities for her community and her family and plans to do so as long as she can. Cheryl acknowledges that her accomplishments wouldn’t be possible without her family and the many individuals that support her.
The Public Relations Committee of the Vernal Area Chamber of Commerce is please to present the Quarterly Outstanding Public Service Award to Cheryl Meier for her many contributions to our Community.
