Posted 11/10/22

Our wonderful faculty and staff give back to NVUSD as teachers, counselors, principals, and coaches - the list goes on and on! However, did you know that many also attended NVUSD schools growing up? Join us as we take a trip back in time and learn about our NVUSD faculty and staff NOW and THEN.

Cheri Flohr

American Canyon High School Assistant Principal

American Canyon High School Assistant Principal Cheri Flohr is no stranger to NVUSD. NVUSD is family…literally! Her NVUSD lineage started with her maternal grandmother Georgina Swearingen and her paternal grandmother Bessie Agnew, one was a teacher at Vintage High School (VHS), and the other was a Librarian at Silverado Middle School and NHS. Her mother Sandy Swearingen followed, teaching at NHS. And as fate would have it, or require it, she then met her husband, Mike Flohr, a teacher at Vintage High School.

Ms. Flohr credits NVUSD for providing her with a solid foundation as she studied and competed her way through Snow Elementary School, Ridgeview Middle School, and then Napa High School. Ms. Flohr fell in love with athletics early on and participated as a member of the  Snow Elementary "RoadRunners" Track & Field Team (Coach Beverly Efishoff), Ridgeview Jr. High School Volleyball (Coaches Sue Sears/Teresa Gainer), Tennis and Track & Field Teams (Coaches Albie Gray/Pam Gray/Coach Schroeder), Napa High School Varsity Softball Team from 1982-1985 (Coach Les Franco), and the Napa High Volleyball Team from 1982-1985 (Coach Barb Franco). Cheri then went on to be the Varsity Volleyball Coach at Vintage High School from 1996-2000, was MEL Coach of the Year in 1996, and continued her coaching career at Redwood Middle School from 2001-2015 in volleyball, track and field, and Soccer. She shared, “I fell in love with fitness and athletics because of the outstanding teachers and coaches that supported me as a student-athlete.”

Now, Ms. Flohr takes all she’s learned and gives back to her ACHS community by “doing whatever it takes to offer as many positive educational experiences for students as possible!” We are grateful Ms. Flohr gives her time and talents back to our students and her NVUSD family. NVUSD is in her genes!
