Scudder was instrumental in development of the Sturgis food pantry, which is a project of the Sturgis Golden K. She has worked with club members to start an Aktion Club for adults with disabilities, a Club Satellite and is working on a Builder’s Club for middle school youth.

Sherry’s leadership experience extends to 45 years in the affordable housing field as executive director for Meade, Butte and Lawrence counties in South Dakota. She served 10 years on the Sturgis City Council, four years as president, as well as several other organizations including being chair of the Black Hills Council of Governments and four years as chairwoman of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
