“Compete in any sport you can imagine... and go for it as long as you can.”

This quote by Cheryl (Miller) Burns perfectly describes the journey that led to her 2024 induction into the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame.

Cheryl, born in 1961, in the Town of Sheridan, NY, was 6th in the lineup of a family of 9 children. Having four older brothers, it was very competitive and challenging to get into their baseball, basketball or other games. She had to get really good, really fast, to get a chance to play. This spilled into a life passion for playing just about any sport.

At an early age she found a craving for physical work. She worked on area cash crop farms many hours to pay her way through college.
