Shannon Fish, Northern Oklahoma College
Shannon Fish currently serves as President of the College Democrats, and as a member of the Literature Club and Phi Theta Kappa. Shannon recently arranged a raffle, sponsored by the Literature Club, to raise funds for our local domestic violence shelter. In addition, she organized a food drive on the Tonkawa campus to benefit the shelter. Through her efforts, the shelter received over $300 worth of non-perishable foods. Shannon is currently coordinating efforts on our campus to engage and enlighten students about sexual assault and domestic violence, especially during the month of April, which is National Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Shannon Fish clearly demonstrates a commitment to grassroots community organizing in her efforts to educate her fellow students about domestic violence, and by encouraging them to become vocal advocates themselves. Her leadership on this important issue makes her a strong candidate for a Newman Civic Fellows Award.
