My name is Shannon Luby and I am a current sophomore at Southern New Hampshire University. I am majoring in elementary education and general special education, and am minoring in mathematics. I am currently on the executive board for two school clubs and am in the Honors Program as an Honors Fellow. I have been working as a substitute teacher and substitute paraprofessional for a local school district throughout the semester. This scholarship will allow me to achieve my dream of becoming an educator and teach my students to recognize and celebrate their identities and uniqueness. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity to achieve higher education and become a great educator!
