Shannon Smith is teaching middle school science classes with Susannah Smith. Additionally, she is coaching varsity cross country. This winter, Shannon will assist with after care and enrichment programs, and she will coach middle school track in the spring.
After graduating from Avery County High School in Newland, NC, Shannon attended Furman University where she was a member of the track and field team and was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences in May. Last summer, she served as the Youth Summer Program director for Momentum Bike Clubs in Greenville, SC, and has continued to mentor youth through the Momentum Bike Clubs.
"The life experiences, internships, and relationships I had with family, friends, and mentors during my time at Furman University allowed me to discover my passion for positive youth development. I want to make the most of the life the Lord has given me by educating, loving, and serving His people; from the moment I first stepped on Wesleyan's campus, I could feel that everyone here had the same mission. I am so excited to become a part of the Wesleyan family!"
