Hoosier STAR Chairperson
Cherri Blair-Drayton, Chairperson for Hoosier STAR 2017, resides in La Porte, Indiana and is married to V. Michael Drayton Board President for the LCSO. She worked 12 years for La Porte County Public Library as an Events Specialist planning and marketing events for all ages for the library system as well as planning and sharing events with many other organizations throughout the La Porte County. Cherri proudly brought music to the library partnering with the LCSO to bring a summer concert series Brass on the Grass featuring the LCSO’s very own Chuck Steck to perform on the library lawn and also partnered with LCSO’s past Executive Director Tonya McGue and Cynthia Ward to implement another concert performed on the library lawn as well featuring a past Hoosier STAR finalist!
Cherri introduced the La Porte County Public Library to its first Traveling Art Exhibition partnering with Lubeznik Art Center and Land of Lakes Art Alliance. Paving the way for the arts mingling with books! She brings this experience to Hoosier STAR 2017!
Cherri has attended many LCSO concerts and events as well as hosting fundraising parties in her home to benefit the LCSO. A love of fine literature prompted her theme for her favorite fundraiser to date; All things Jane Austen. One of her favorite concerts to volunteer for is the LCSO’S annual Children’s Concert. She would like to thank her Hoosier STAR Committee members, and ALL the volunteers that have worked hard to bring this amazing event together! Cherri would like to thank her mom Diana Blair for her tireless efforts in tech support!!!
