Director of Baptist Student Ministries Dr. Shawn Shannon (center) was presented with an honorary membership into the Alumni Association during the Homecoming Dessert Party Friday, Sept. 30. Director of Alumni Relations Rebecca O’Banion, senior Andrew Kester, Assistant Director of Alumni Relations Melissa Ford, and Alumni Association president Cindy Breaux Roberts ‘90 presented the award to Shannon, who was nominated because of her deep love for UMHB. She rarely misses a campus event, and is the most commonly used campus figure in Stunt Night skits and Crusader Knights contestant videos. These activities are not what qualified Shannon for this award, but rather the spirit in which she does them. Honorary memberships into the Alumni Association are granted to individuals who, although they are not former students or graduates of the university, have shown love and loyalty to the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.
