This should work:

\appendix

\renewcommand{\chapnumfont}{\normalfont\large\scshape\center}

\renewcommand{\chaptitlefont}{\chapnumfont}

\clearpage
~
\vfill
\chapter{Cylinder Papers}
\vfill

What I have below gives me what I am looking for except the title and number are in the header.  Is there a way to move it down to the middle vertically and have only the chapter number and title on that page? The way I am doing it below works well with my TOC and footer.
