In 2001, Cheryl began to oversee the development of the Ford PAS program, an education program initiated by Ford Motor Company Fund as part of its ongoing efforts to encourage high school students to pursue their education—and build successful careers—in business, engineering, and technology. Ford PAS is currently being implemented in 27 states since it was launched in 2004. Cheryl also developed the Ford PAS Next Generation Learning Communities (Ford PAS NGLC).

This program reaffirms the commitment of Ford Motor Company Fund to making education a top priority.

In her current position, Cheryl uses her vast experience in partnership building and team leadership to oversee Ford’s 21st Century education programs in their development, dissemination, direct technical assistance and regional and national partnerships with the government, school districts, community organizations, colleges/university and workforce and economic development entities partnering with Ford.

Cheryl joined Ford Motor Company in May of 1978. She held numerous positions in Engineering, Finance and Business Strategy, and Investor Relations. Most recently, Cheryl worked for William Clay Ford, Jr., now Chairman of Ford Motor Company. In this capacity, she assisted Mr. Ford from 1989 through 1997, as he held various management positions and was a member of the Ford Motor Company Board of Directors.

In 1997, Cheryl left Ford Motor Company on a special assignment to develop a Human Resource department at The Detroit Lions where she was responsible for developing human resource policy and procedures. She was also a member of the Policy, Operating and Strategy Committee.
