photo Cagle on Poach: "Shannon had some bright moments throughout this past academic year. She was a part of several very important goals last fall, but we hope she finds a way to impact us on a more consistent basis. If she arrives on campus this fall in great shape, having dedicated herself over the summer, she will have the most impact she has ever had on our program. We hope to see that from her."
