An article was recently written in the Kansas City Star about Thalia Cherry, GMLC 2012, and her success in business.  She created Cherry Co., a company that creates stylish sporting gear.  She currently employs 18 people, has clients like: UMKC, Negro League Baseball Museum, Syracuse, Everfy, Baylor, and many other schools. She has created the Cherry Foundation, which contributes 10% of her company’s annual revenue to sports, entrepreneurial and educational non-profits around the US. Some of the players Cherry has created products for are recognizable: Patrick Mahomes, Eric Berry, Shane Ray, Dontari Poe, Charles Harris and many more. The most recent exclusive Cherry collection, the KC Legacy collection, features outstanding “Ring of Honor” players such as Derrick Thomas, Neil Smith, and Derron Cherry (who ironically, is not related to her).
