Quote from Shannon's supervisor:
“Throughout her time at the Park District, Shannon has held several positions, including Clubhouse assistant site director, Clubhouse site director, Camp supervisor, Pod Squad facilitator, Discovery Kids bus driver, and most recently, Clubhouse coordinator.  Shannon goes above and beyond for her participants, parents and coworkers. She is quick to lend a hand, and make everyone around her feel special and important.  Shannon has proven herself time and time again to be able to think on her feet, and offer quick solutions for immediate problems.  Shannon’s work ethic, experience and involvement are admirable; and, we are so fortunate to have someone as dedicated as her onboard!" - Amanda Busch, Recreation Supervisor
