Lisa Loving has profiled our outstanding Multnomah Youth Commissioner, Shantel Monk, in the Skanner's Careers issue, available now. Writes Loving, "we at The Skanner sought out the most inspirational person we could find to offer advice on preparing for the future." That person, as we on the Fish Team knew, is Shantel Monk.
"With economy problems that we have now," Shantel offered, "don't let the negativity that's going on now stop you from living your dream. I don't intend to and you shouldn't either."
Shantel, a recent graduate, is on her way to Spelman College this fall. As our Youth Commissioner, she has been a tremendous addition to our team, and we wish her the very best in Atlanta.
