Monrovia Hires Tina Cherry as New Community Services Director


After a lengthy recruitment process, the City of Monrovia has hired a new Community Services Director: Tina Cherry, MPA. Ms. Cherry has an extensive background in the field of community services, and comes to Monrovia from the City of Chino where she served as the Department of Community Services Recreation Supervisor since May 2007.

Cherry's career focus has been on service to the community through youth and recreation programs. Her career has taken her through many cities and given her great experience, starting as a recreation leader and making her way up through the ranks of the Community Services Departments of Yorba Linda, Diamond Bar, Laguna Hills and Chino.

Cherry has managed before and after-school programs, seasonal camps for youth, intervention and prevention programs, city-wide special events, literacy and health initiatives, the Chino Youth Museum and the armed forces banner program. As Community Services Director for the City of Monrovia, Cherry will oversee the Recreation and Library Division.

Cherry graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Cal State Fullerton in 2003, and received her Master's in Public Administration from Cal State Northridge in 2010.

"I am honored to be part of this very strong team here in Monrovia- it seems to be a really good fit," said Cherry. Ms. Cherry began work in Monrovia on Monday, March 24, 2014. Former Community Services Director April Soash retired in November 2013.

Born in Yorba Linda, CA, she now lives in the City of Corona with her husband of nine years, Craig Cherry.
