Growing up in Fairmont, WV, Charlee loved to read and learn; traits that have served her well as a Shepherd Ram. Charlee has been actively involved in the classroom and in the community over the last four years and is eager to take the knowledge and experience she has gained at Shepherd and put it to work in the courtroom.
As the fifth generation in her family going into law in the state of West Virginia, Charlee’s experiences at Shepherd have prepared her to take the next step in realizing her dreams of becoming a lawyer. She credits much of her success to the caring and guidance of faculty and staff at every level of the University, from the Ram’s Den to the science lab.
With 70% of students at Shepherd receiving some sort of financial aid, the generous support provided each year by alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the university, through The Shepherd Fund, helps ensure that students like Charlee can achieve their lifelong goals.
Let’s let Charlee tell you in her own words:
In addition to being a Shepherd Fund scholarship recipient, Charlee is a member of the Political Science Fraternity, Phi Sigma Alpha, a McMurran Scholar, a Student Ambassador, a 2013 recipient of the Byron Fellowship and also volunteers with the Shepherd Rams football team.
Charlee will be graduating early, in December 2013, with a degree in Environmental Sustainability. She has already taken her LSATs and is applying early decision to law school.
