It’s homecoming weekend at Sheridan High School but SHS Principal Dirlene Wheeler will be conspicuously absent from many of the festivities. Wheeler has her own homecoming celebration to attend where she is the guest of honor. She is one of five graduates of Chadron State College graduates with successful careers that are being given distinguished alumni awards tomorrow. Wheeler says education wasn’t her first career choice.
Wheeler was recently in the spotlight locally when she was selected as the 2008-2009 Wyoming Principal of the Year. Wheeler graduated from Chadron State College in 1976 and also happens to be a Chadron native. She and the other honorees will be recognized during CSC’s homecoming activities this weekend.
