Classmate Katie Williams’ husband, Jeff Scherschligt, developed Cherapa Place on the East Bank of the Big Sioux River and has been instrumental in restoring many of the historic buildings in Downtown Sioux Falls. Cherapa Place, built on the grounds of the old Zip Feed Mill, recently broke ground for 225 million dollar expansion that will add multiple buildings for condos, offices, recreation, shops and more.
