Clean and friendly! Everyone waves, lots of recreations and things to do. Great lake close by to do some fishing and boating. Good schools with good education.

I have grown up here, and I love my community. It is small and quaint. The problem is there isn't much to do, but we should be seeing the building of activity areas like bowling soon. The people are friendly, violent crime is low. The biggest crime we have here is theft. Our teachers are great here, but the current high school is completely over crowded, but a bond was recently passed to build a new one.
There isn't a whole lot to do in Sherman. The town is a fair size, but you can quickly get to know most people quickly enough to recognize them by face. The schools are too small for the growing population of the city, and there aren't enough classes that actually teach the students anything worthwhile.
