Mr. Shannon’s extraordinary efforts were brought to light by Habib Malang Diatta, a teacher, coach and most importantly a proud member of the WT community for almost 20 years. Habib stated, “I have been blessed to work with an exceptional parent and resident of our district. Michael Dean Shannon has been the women’s soccer booster president the last six years. I believe I am the longest serving women’s soccer coach in our school program, but I do not know anybody who has done more than Mike for us.” Mike has been a relentless supporter and advocate for our students-athletes in a variety of ways. He has revolutionized the way the booster club is run to a point that it has alleviated the financial and organizational demands our sport puts on the athletic department and the coaches. He has spent his own financial and logistical resources to make sure that our students are in the best conditions to compete. Not only Mike has always made sure that all our student-athlete have what they need in terms of equipment, but he has also made sure to include socio-emotional activities that gave our kids a sense of belonging and pride. On behalf of the North Central Women’s Soccer program, we humbly recognize Mr. Michael Dean Shannon for his Leadership, Care and Serviced rendered to the North Central Athletic Community. Mike embodies parent’s positive involvement and support and His leadership and care will be missed, but his legacy and inspiration will forever be part of this program. Congratulations on this recognition and thank you for everything you do for Washington Township Schools.
