Meet Sherry Bell

Grandmother Sherry Bell was born Deaf and it hasn’t stopped her from having goals for herself or her family. She is extremely proud of her three children – one who is a college graduate, one who is attending college and one who is in the military. They are all keenly aware of her mantra that ‘deaf people can do everything that hearing people can do.’

Bell came to CIL Jacksonville for assistance and ended up working with the deaf clients to help them find employment. From there, her CIL Coordinator helped her find a job that Sherry felt was a better fit. Today Sherry works for Pitney Bowes in the Quality Control department.

“I have a lot of goals for myself,” she adds. “I want to be a good role model for the deaf community and I want deaf people to have the same attitude that I do – be assertive.”

Sherry wears hearing aids and communicates with the assistance of a sign language interpreter. Her motivation and willingness to engage with the community are a testament to her spirit.
