Hi, I'm Sherrie Hicks

WHO AM I?

I graduated high school in Orlando, Florida. After graduating from the University of TN at Martin (Go Skyhawks!) I lived in New Orleans and Nashville before moving to Germantown. Steve and I met and married in Nashville, TN, and have lived in Germantown for 30 years. We have three sons who graduated from Germantown schools. Our oldest son graduated from Germantown High School in 2014, the United States Military Academy-West Point. He and Abigail married in 2019 and now reside in Clarksville, TN with their daughter, our first grand-daughter. Our middle son graduated from Houston High School in 2016 and works in IT. Our youngest son graduated from Houston High School in 2021 and is pursuing his Master’s degree in criminal justice degree at the University of Memphis.   


We are grateful to live in this wonderful city.  Our three boys have been raised in a safe community with strong schools and countless opportunities. 
 

Alongside a career in medical sales, and prior to being elected in 2020, I served and led our community in many ways:

  • President of two neighborhood associations (Poplar Estates Neighborhood Association, various roles, 1994-2009, and Dogwood Grove Homeowner’s Association, multiple roles, 2009-Current)

  • Leadership Germantown, Class of 2000 

  • Design Review Commission, City of Germantown, 2001-2002

  • Planning Commission, City of Germantown, 2003-2007, 2018-Current

  • President of Houston Middle School PTA (PTO). Various other roles in PTA and PTO, 2015-2019

  • President of the Germantown Council of Neighborhood Associations, 2013-2014

  • Board of Zoning and Appeals, City of Germantown, 2016-2017

  • Team Read Volunteer, 2017-2019

  • Germantown Education Foundation, Secretary, 2019-2020

  • Advocate for Dogwood Grove neighbors to be removed from FEMA Flood Zone, 2013-2018

​It is surprising how we look back at our upbringing and see where our strongest influences came from. As a young girl, I spent much time with my grandmother, Muriel W. Pease, and saw how she brought her neighbors together in Astor, FL. Astor had no gathering place for residents. She wanted a sense of community and a way to coordinate helping one another. She and a small group of friends and neighbors met around her dining room table, and years later, the Muriel W. Pease Astor Community Association (ACA) was built. That building housed the first library in Astor and still stands as a community gathering place. 

Since being elected in 2020, I have enjoyed continuing to work and learn from all my neighbors here in Germantown. If we have not met, I look forward to speaking with you and hearing about your Germantown story.

Safe Streets.         Strong Schools.         Exceptional Quality of Life.          Where Families Flourish.
