In this week's Alumni Spotlight, we catch up with alumna Shannon Ferch.
What are you doing now?
I am a Procurement Specialist at Austin Housing Redevelopment Authority.
How did APS prepare you for this role?
I was able to take post secondary classes my junior and senior year at Riverland to help get ahead of the game. The counseling staff were so helpful in navigating my options.
What is your advice for current Packers?
Don’t ever be afraid to try something new. Success in life is easy as long as you believe in yourself. Have fun, explore your options, get involved and don’t ever be afraid to ask for help!
Who at APS inspired you?
Mr. Anderson and Mr. Bishop
