After high school at West Ottawa in Holland, Shannon graduated with a Bachelor of Music Education degree from Western Michigan University in 1996 and a Masters degree in Educational Leadership from Grand Valley State University in 2003. As the Head of School, Shannon has worked to strengthen and support the school's mission of "Preparing students for college and life." This school wide focus, with its capstone Advanced Placement program, has led to recognitions by Newsweek as a top state and national high school as well as last spring's Washington Post recognition as the number one high school in Michigan.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
