Cheryl Ann Nelson

March 1, 2023

Cheryl Ann is a recent retiree of Community College of Philadelphia where she served as an English professor for 30 years. She has lived in the West Mt Airy neighborhood since 2004 in a lovely Victorian home on Sharpnack Street. Her primary area of interest during her retirement is working with organizations that promote the importance and enjoyment of reading, especially for children and youth. Recent home and apartment development in her immediate area has spurned a desire to protect the W. Mt Airy neighborhood from being overly developed with construction that does not reflect a respect for this historic area of the Wissahickon Valley.
