Sherie Lynn Christen and Gerard C. Sabo were classmates from grade school to junior high in Chalmette, Louisiana. Sherie passed away in the spring of their eighth-grade school year. During that year, she talked about her goal of being at the top of her (college) class. Sherie was a good student in school and would have achieved her goal.
Mr. Sabo established the endowed scholarship as a way to memorialize and honor his classmate, Sherie. Also, he wanted to say 'Thank you' to the Chemical Engineering Department for, among other things, the support provided while at U.S.L.
Gerard C. Sabo received his Bachelor of Science, Chemical Engineering, in 1986. He is working in the chemical-manufacturing sector.
