Andria Andis-Cherry’s love for Anderson is strong. She is a product of the Anderson Community Schools, graduating in 1998 from Highland High School. Growing up, she had the pleasure of dancing at the Ann Harmeson School of Dance and the Anderson Young Ballet Theater. She has fond memories of being a part of several musicals at Anderson’s Mainstage Theatre, including shows such as The King and I, Annie, and Geppetto and Son. Andria grew up playing golf at Edgewood and Anderson Country Clubs, which led to playing golf in high school. At Highland High School, she was a member of the Highland Singers and had the opportunity to compete and win championships nationwide. One of her favorite memories is performing on The Paramount Theater stage each year for the Festival of the Trees celebration. Andria went to Ball State University and IUPUI, where she earned an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and a master’s degree in Education. She taught in Greenfield for fourteen years, and coached the Greenfield-Central High School girls golf team and was named coach of the year. She taught both 3rd and 5th grades and was nominated as a Teacher of the Year. Andria and her family including her husband, Keegan, and daughters Hadleigh and Presley now live in Cicero. She has taught seven years at Hamilton Heights Elementary and Middle Schools. You can find the Cherry family on the boat in the summer and enjoying the quaint town throughout the year. As with so many others, The Paramount Theater in Anderson is a treasure to Andria. In 2019, Andria competed in the first year of the group dance division in Dancing Like the Stars. She tangoed the night away and came home with the Team Judge’s Choice Champion trophy with some of Anderson’s biggest supporters: Amy (Cook) Gilbert, Natalie Royer, Hillary (Royer) Novak, Brytni (Novak) Hessler, and Mary Baker-Boudissa. Last year, she felt honored to be one of the 2022 Dancing Like the Stars emcees. She feels like one of the lucky ones to have grown up in Anderson with her parents, Randy and Debbie Andis, and her brother, Ross. If you ever ask Andria to join you for an event in Anderson, especially at The Paramount Theater, she will not turn you down.
