Cheryl Helton

 

If you have ever attended a USTA Georgia officiated tournament, chances are you have directly or indirectly seen the work of Cheryl Helton.  Ms. Helton recently completed her service in 2016 as the USTA Georgia State Chair of Officials.  Currently she serves as USTA Southern Sectional Chair of Officials.  It is not uncommon to here of her travels across the state of Georgia and the Southern Section to officiate some of their most competitive tournaments.  Her involvement is one of the reasons that Ms. Helton was the recipient of the 2013 USTA Georgia Mac MacDougal Tennis Official of the Year and the USTA Southern nominee for Nicholas E. Powell Award as Grassroots Official of the Year in 2014.  USTA Georgia is honored to recognize Cheryl Helton as our Spotlight Volunteer of the Month.
