Canton resident Joan McFather joined a prestigious list of former recipients to receive the award presented by the Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce designed to honor meritorious service to the community. McFather taught English for 30 years at Cherokee High School prior to retiring, and has devoted thousands of hours to community service through dozens of organizations such as the Service League of Cherokee County, Cherokee FOCUS, the Cherokee Arts Center and Juvenile Court Citizens Review Panel. In accepting the award, McFather said it was an overwhelming compliment and she appreciated it tremendously. "I am just so appreciative and this means so much to me," McFather said. Longtime friend and former First Citizen recipient JoEllen Wilson said McFather taught her how to be a good friend. "I would select Joan any day in the week for this award because she is so giving, and she never wants anything in return. Among her many volunteer efforts, McFather has served on the Cherokee Community Chorale board; Cherokee County Retired Educators Association, where she was chairman; Cherokee County Juvenile Court: Citizens Foster Care Review Panels, where she was chairman; Cherokee County Arts Council Board of Directors, where she was president from 2002 to 2004 and as a member of the Advisory Board; and the Cherokee County Master Gardeners, where she is now secretary. She volunteers as a docent at the Funk Heritage Center, was on the Cherokee FOCUS Board of Directors from 2001 to 2012, and served as chairman for two years; and served on the Sequoyah Regional Library Board of Directors. She is active in the Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce, where she has been a member for 10 years, a Chamber Connection member and on the Chairman's Council for seven years. She has served on the Chamber Education Committee, as Cherokee PIGNIC sub-chair, was Volunteer of the Year in 2010, on the Board of Directors from 2011 to 2014 and on the Teen Leadership Committee in 2013. McFather was a 2003 Leadership Cherokee graduate and served on the Cherokee County Court Appointed Special Advocates Board of Directors for six years. McFather was born and raised on Long Island, N.Y., and moved to Canton in 1965. She has two grown daughters.
