Our first ever Polished Pi recipient is a girl who is known and beloved throughout our chapter. Even as a senior, she still attends almost every chapter and ADPi event, probably because she has so many friends and is so involved inside the house. When asked about this recipient, her friend Claire Porter said “Shannon is the most supportive friend I have. She is always there to listen to my problems, and when I was having an awful day during my worst semester, she surprised me by taping a piece of paper full of inspirational quotes and empowering messages on my desk. I kept it up for weeks and still have it and will probably frame it one day. She will always go out on a limb for a friend, dropping everything to make sure they feel safe and loved. Everyone deserves a Shannon in their life.”
Shannon served our chapter most recently as Chaplain, and is involved in Peer Health Exchange, Beta Alpha Psi, works for the Marshall School of Business Undergraduate Advising and Student Affairs, and was the lead intern there. After graduation, she has accepted a job with Deloitte in their external Audit Practice, where she absolutely killed her internship last summer, and serves as a campus ambassador. She always has others’ best interests at heart, and is a joy to have around the house. Violets to you Shannon, we love you!
