This past fall, Sherry Aaron was recognized with one of the Division’s Distinguished Performance Awards for Service.
The Service Award recognizes an individual whose service and contributions, through division and/or university projects and committees, and/or the local community, help to advance the goals of Student Affairs and the University.
Sherry serves the University as Director of the Victim Advocacy Center. While her service to the University is extensive, her service to the community is remarkable. Sherry chairs Miami-Dade County’s Alliance Against Domestic Violence and serves on the County Domestic Violence Fatality Review Board, the Unified Court Advisory Board of the 11th Judicial Circuit, and co-chairs the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Council of Greater Miami. Miami Commissioner Mel Martinez recently appointed Sherry to the County Domestic Violence Oversight Board. This board provides the oversight for taxpayer dollars allocated to fund domestic violence shelters. Sherry’s service at FIU and in the local community helps to ensure that our students have access to needed services.
We are proud to have Sherry Aaron as part of our team in the Division of Student Affairs.
