On August 3, 2020, at a socially distanced Board of Deacons Meeting of the Tryon Congregational Church, Sherril Wingo was surprised by the presentation of her certificate naming her a member of the Second Wind Hall of Fame (SWHF).

Presented by SWHF Board members Manfred Walter and Priscilla Yeager, Sherril was recognized for her twenty years spent as a “professional volunteer” in Polk County.

Among many others, Sherril spent 12 years in a variety of positions at the Polk County Community Foundation and 11 years on the board of Isothermal Community College Polk Foundation. She gave seven years of her time to Hospice of the Carolina Foothills and was instrumental in facilitating its merger with Rutherford Hospice. Currently she is serving as Secretary of the board at Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE).
