Cherry Featured in Hometown Highlight


Neil Cherry

Servanthood, it’s a sum in one word of this month’s hometown highlight. For the month of June we are honoring former Waldron Mayor, Neil Cherry.

Cherry preceded current Mayor David Millard, serving the city with great heart and compassion. “During my tenure of working with him I knew that he had great Christian morals and integrity. He always had the City of Waldron’s best interest at heart. I am honored to be able to call him my friend,” stated Millard.

In 2019, Cherry was honored as “Volunteer of the Year” by the board members of the Scott County Boys and Girls Club.

Cherry has spent a lifetime serving others. He is strong and steadfast in his faith. He openly expresses his love for Christ, and has taken this same message abroad with him on church mission trips.

A member of Waldron First Baptist Church, Cherry continues to serve the community through his work at the food pantry. This self-supporting mission serves the community, providing food to those in need.

Cherry’s faith, family and his community are at the heart of everything he does. He continues to make a positive difference in the lives of others and for that we are honored to feature him!
