El Camino High School
South San Francisco, CA
Shannen, a current sophomore at El Camino High in California started becoming involved with her Students in Action club during her freshman year where the club won the regional competition and a national Jefferson award gold medal. This club enabled her to pursue her love for service and push her to take on more leadership roles. From a young age, Shannen has been passionate about giving back to others leading her to volunteering in her community, whether it is fundraising to help cure cancer or planting a tree at her local park. Today, she continues to empower the people around her and serve as the public relations officer for her Students In Action club. Outside of service, she is team captain for her cross-country team and runs for her school’s track and field distance team. She is also active in helping out at her church and other clubs such as Red Cross and UNICEF.
