Shannon still holds her high school’s track and field record for the 100m high hurdles. She set this record in 2002.

In high school, she lettered in soccer, basketball, and track & field. She competed at the state championships in each of these.

Over 300 formal gowns had been collected by Shannon over the years with the intent to loan them out to girls for prom. All of these dresses were donated to a local theater that is loaning them out for that exact purpose.

Shannon used to write a poem every day when she was in high school to help cope with life. A few of them have even been published.

Her husband says she’s awesome.
