Nipissing students consistently impress as leaders, in the classroom, on campus and in the community.  Recently the university celebrated 25 student leaders at the annual Dave Marshall Leadership Awards.  Over the coming months, NU News will introduce each student leader to the wider community with a short article discussing their accomplishments and activities. Today, we are pleased to profile Shannon Mortson, who is working toward a Bachelor of Arts degree, with Hono​urs in Criminal Justice, Policing stream.

Shannon has been involved with the Criminal Justice Student Association, as both President and Vice President, Alpha Phi Sigma, the Criminal Justice Honour Society, and Residence Life as a Don.

As an executive member of the Criminal Justice Student Association, Shannon helped organize events to enhance the Criminal Justice student experience. She invited guest speakers from various areas of the criminal justice system and planned social events to help students connect with one another and find their place in the greater Nipissing community. In her role as a Residence Don, Shannon is often sought out by her peers for guidance and support because she is known for her genuine interest in developing meaningful connections and strong supportive relationships with her fellow students. 

Shannon is hardworking, respectful, and professional. She is kind, supportive of others, and is always willing to help those in need. Shannon is an excellent role model for her peers, and has demonstrated it is possible to maintain high academic standards while actively participating in a variety of events on campus.

The university community recognizes Shannon with a Dave Marshall Leadership Award in the Campus Category.
