South Glastonbury, CT
For her Gold Award project, Shannon researched the life of Glastonbury residents, Julie and Abby Smith. She wrote a mini-play that outlined their lives and their accomplishments specific to women's suffrage. The performances were videotaped and the script and DVD were donated to local libraries. This project educated the community on the impact the sisters had on the women's suffrage movement. Shannon attends Glastonbury High School and hopes to go to law school one day.
