Shannon Pape has been recognized as College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Staff of the Month for May 2019. Hired in January 2011, she served as the Administrative Assistant the Dual Credit and Business, Math, and Economics Department. In July 2012, she was chosen to be CWI’s first Dual Credit Coordinator later being promoted to Senior Coordinator in 2014 and Assistant Director in 2018. Pape is grateful for the opportunities she has been given since the inception of CWI’s Dual Credit Program and loves working with college and high school faculty.
An inspiring leader, Pape operates from the philosophy that she can do nothing without the whole team. One coworker shared she is “always willing to listen to other sides of the story to truly understand a situation, show sympathy, and extend grace.”
Pape is currently enrolled in Idaho State University’s Department of Organizational Learning and Performance and is excited to finally be finishing up her Master’s Degree in Human Resource Development next fall! She will celebrate her 23rd wedding anniversary to her husband, Dave, this summer. Together, they have an 18-year old daughter who will be graduating from high school this year, and a 15-year old son who currently eats, breathes, and sleeps Mountain View High School football. She enjoys participating in most outdoor activities, but is especially fond of paddling in her kayak, fishing on a lake, cooking in her little camp trailer, or relaxing in her backyard tree house.
Please join us in congratulating Shannon on her accomplishment!
