  Published at

The EastIdahoNews.com team is busy helping a local Secret Santa give $1 million to deserving people in eastern Idaho this holiday season.

Cheryl has worked 30 years as a part time special education paraprofessional. She is very devoted to the special education program in American Falls and consistently molds her instruction to the needs of the individual student. Cheryl has countless hours of training and does anything required of her to help where needed.

Cheryl has been treated for two skin cancers. Her husband Gayle also has complicated health issues and is having surgery this month. He often has to visit Idaho Falls to get eye injections.

Cheryl and Gayle spend a lot of time on the road for doctor appointments. They are always willing to help anyone in need. Gayle is a gifted gardener. He shares his bounty with others.

Secret Santa asked the East Idaho News elves if we could pay Cheryl a visit at work and surprise her with a gift. Check out the video in the player above!
