Green Valley students meet Indiana's first lady in New Albany

Cheri Daniels reads a book she co-authored to first-graders


“I liked it because it’s cool when people come and read to us,” said Danielle Grant, 7.

Daniels said it was neat coming back to the school where she honed her reading skills to tell others about how important reading is.

“This is a very important time in their education and reading is key to their future and they are our future,” she said.

Vernia said Daniels’ visit teaches the kids even more than that.

“It’s good for the kids to see her as a person and not as a person on TV,” she said. “... and the fact that she’s a former student here shows that everyone has possibilities.”


• Cheri Herman Daniels, a lifelong Hoosier, was born and raised in New Albany. She is the granddaughter of Baseball Hall of Famer Bill Herman. She attended Indiana University, where she studied journalism.


• Not only is Daniels a writer, but she also has cooking recipes on her Web site,

• To contact the first lady, call 317-931-3076 or mail 4750 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis, IN, 46208.
