"Her positive, can do attitude is infectious. Shelley has the knack of cutting through the red tape and connecting alumni directors with answers to any issue that arises. She is always positive and smiling with her assistance... Her professionalism is to be rewarded. Because of her focus, the University of South Carolina alumni directors learn best practices to offer each alumni society and keep alumni involved in the schools and colleges' activities."
