Cheryl Villalobos



Cheryl Villalobos moved to Sterling Park in 1993 with her husband, Matt, to raise their family. While her six children attended Park View High School, she jumped in to help wherever was needed- feeding the football team, the drama club, girls soccer, the volleyball team, girls lacrosse, cross country, and the track team. She worked on Project Graduation for 12 years, leading it for three of those years. She organized the bi-annual craft & vendor shows and still runs them in March and November. As each of her kids headed off to college, she wanted to get more involved in the Sterling community. She founded the Sterling Park Neighborhood Exchange (SPNE) Facebook group to help keep neighbors informed of local happenings. Through the SPNE, she met Aaron Gilman, who was actively volunteering to make Sterling better. He invited her to join the Sterling Foundation Board and later encouraged her to manage the vendors for Sterling Fest. She is a receptionist/assistant at the Glass Door Salon and attends Chantilly Bible Church. 2019 will be Cheryl’s fifth year on the Sterling Foundation Board of Directors but her second year as chairman of the board. She loves the collaboration of her 15 board members to make the community a better place for all.
