The Family Support Council is pleased to announce that the annual “Toast of the Town” event will be held in person on June 2, 2022, at The Farm. This is a wonderful evening that honors exceptional people for their work in our community. This year marks the 32nd annual “Toast of the Town.” This year’s honoree is Dr. Reginald Sherrill, fondly known as Reggie. Reggie is a beloved doctor, businessman, philanthropist, and behind-the-scenes community supporter and leader. The event will honor this exceptional man whose contributions and dedication to his community are widely known and respected. Proceeds will help eradicate the tragic consequences of child abuse and neglect in Northwest Georgia.
Reggie Sherrill may have been born in Texas to a Seventh Day Adventist minister and his mother, but he has called Dalton home since 1982. After graduating from Loma Linda University School of Medicine in 1977, he went on to a General Surgery Residency at Loma Linda University Medical Center. After completing three years in General Surgery, he transferred to Wright State University Kettering Medical Center in Dayton, Ohio, for his Plastic Surgery Residency. He completed his training in 1982. He moved with his wife Marg and their young family to Dalton to practice medicine in 1982 after Reynolds Jennings and Norman Burkett encouraged him to come here to work. Reggie was most impressed by the exceptional one hundred sixty private room hospital, which was unheard of at that time in such a small town. The Sherrills knew no one in Dalton but soon discovered that Dr. Jeff White, an old medical school classmate, and his wife lived here. They remain dear friends to this day. If you ask anyone about Dr. Sherrill, their faces light up, and they always speak of his generosity towards our community.
Today, Reggie has his medical practice, Dalton Plastic Surgery, where he enjoys working with his “Office Family.” He continues to be a patron of the arts through the ACT Little Theatre and is a generous supporter of many United Way Community Partners. He especially enjoys spending time with his self-described “Modern Family,” which consists of three children, Matthew, Jessica, and Leightta, six grandchildren ( all boys), and one great-grandson. David and Jolie Hastey round out his “Modern Family,” His significant other, Kimberly, and her daughter, Emma Kate, complete the whole package. In his spare time, Reggie enjoys golfing with his friends, traveling, and spending time with his family.
