Cheryl Kirby-Stokes received her Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from Kansas State University in 1984 and her Masters in Science in Secondary Education Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Kansas in 1996. She has been active in community development work in Kenya and has the opportunity to travel with her husband, Dr. Michael Stokes, a wildlife biologist at WKU, to South Africa to assist him with his course there. She was President of the Bowling Green Rotary Club in 2013-14 and has been a regular volunteer for WKYU-FM since 1998. Ms. Kirby-Stokes will be helping students identify and apply for summer internships, edit and review their scholarship applications, and locate additional competitions and scholarships for which Gatton students can apply. Although not a scientist, she loves having her brain boggled and is looking forward to working with some of the best and brightest high school students in Kentucky.
