Supporting comments: "Shannon has been a Big Sister for two years and has set a solid example for her Little Sister; her experience gave her the confidence and authority to lead both the Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council to adopt First Mentors as a common philanthropy; they have had a great impact on the Littles and led to the greatest increase in the number of activities for the children ever experienced by the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Licking County; Shannon was especially valuable on cabinet because she brought her Greek leadership to DCA projects; she initiated the idea of having Big Red's Big Day service count toward Greek houses points for Greek week service; her personal zeal for service reflection and growth were values that both her Hospice Committee and the other chairs were able to emulate."
