Shashamanne “Shasha” Lemons has been named Campus Engagement and Leadership's Student of the Month for March.
The student spotlight program was created to celebrate the impact their student workers have on the success of the department and the programs it hosts. Each month the department nominates and selects students who meet the standards of commitment to the office, personal responsibility and accountability, and passion for everyday leadership.
Lemons, a senior majoring in exercise and sports science, is from Durham, and currently serves as chair to Pembroke Activities Council’s Board of Trustees through the office.
Pembroke Activities Council (PAC) is a student organization comprised of well-trained student leaders who plan and implement events for students and the campus community. Their events, like Comedian Kountry Wayne and this year’s 29th Annual Talent Show, often draw crowds that reach the thousands.
Lemons has been placed on the honor’s list five times while at UNC Pembroke. Beyond excelling inside the classroom, Lemons has served in a leadership role in the Residence Hall Association, and she is currently completing an internship with the Office of Campus Recreation.
Assistant Director of Campus Engagement and Leadership Parker Watson shared, “I met Shasha on the first day of classes her freshman year when she entered a course I was teaching. Now, as a senior, she is one of the strongest leaders I have the pleasure of working with on campus. It has been extremely gratifying to watch Shasha grow and develop as a student, leader and member of the campus community.”
Fellow member of Pembroke Activities Council Malaysia Felder agrees. “Shashamanne Lemons is dedicated, hard-working, responsible, and dependable. She consistently impresses me when she is handling multiple tasks at once and still manages to keep her cool and professionalism.”
