Michael Cheromiah – New Mexico

Pursuit of Greatness
Michael Cheromiah – New Mexico

Michael Cheromiah, New Mexico ’18, joined Phi Delta Theta Fraternity in 2015 and was initiated into the New Mexico Alpha Chapter at the University of New Mexico. During his time as an undergraduate, he served the chapter as alumni and public relations chairman.

From Isleta Pueblo, New Mexico, Michael’s entire career has focused on helping the people of New Mexico. A high school teacher and head girls’ volleyball and basketball coach at Abundant Life Christian School, a school that serves a low-income population in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Michael strives to teach college readiness among future first-generation university students. He has introduced Girls Who Code and connects students to the Summer Engineering Program at the University of New Mexico.

Civic service is also important to Michael. In 2021, he was given a judicial appointment in the Village of Bosque Farms, and in 2022, Cheromiah would be elected municipal councilor, where he has worked to promote economic development and make voting easier. Cheromiah also serves on the Alumni Spirit Committee at the University of New Mexico, a committee that seeks to promote university pride and foster alumni involvement.

“The Cardinal Principles of Phi Delta Theta have played an important role within my life. I strive to emphasize the value of Friendship within my classroom, continually demonstrate the value of Sound Learning not only as an academic endeavor but also as a life skill, and display Rectitude by being involved civically and  teaching students that we are to glorify God through our morally good action.”
