Cherrell Jackson (Masters of Science in Psychology) has dedicated her life and career to service. She has consistently provided supportive services in some capacity for the past 11 years and continues to work her passion for uplifting and empowering people.
While working in the housing services industry for 7 years, Cherrell directly engaged with thousands of children, families, and seniors to provide citizens housing and coordinated programming geared towards improving quality of life in her home town of Philadelphia, PA and most recently in Richmond, Virginia.
Whether it be facilitating positive programming for middle schoolers at a Philadelphia Non-Profit organization, Giving of Self Partnership, INC, coordinating their volunteer program, or forming new community grocery store partnerships for the local food bank, Cherrell got it done. From successfully raising earthquake supplies for Haiti while attending undergrad at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, to personally raising funds for a college book scholarship she created for Young Kings Brand, she lives by the motto “create what you wish existed.” Cherrell found herself amongst the trailblazing group of “firsts” when she became the first Black Woman Supervisor in the facilities and maintenance division of Marine Corps Community Service, Camp Lejeune-New River Marine Corps Base in Jacksonville, NC where she supervised 22 amazing and hard-working employees at one point during her 3 years of service to her fellow military families.
Star Student Coaching was created post-pandemic to mimic the coaching program, Carolyn Lewis, M.Ed, created for her grandson to support continued learning as he transitioned from the classroom setting to virtual programming. Mrs. Lewis called herself ”Learning Coach” and began having one on one sessions with her grandsons. The results were instant and the effectiveness of her coaching was undeniable. The students were becoming self-starters, they put forth effort to maintain routines, manage their emotions and improve their grades for a previously agreed upon reward.
Cherrell recognized the treasure she had in Mrs. Carolyn Lewis’ expert educational programming and combined her education and experience with the intellectual property of her brilliant mother to bring you 100% virtual weekly academic success and well-being programming, that has become Star Student Coaching!
