January Miss Cooperative: Shannon Chapman



January’s Miss Cooperative has been a long-time favorite in the house, winning the coveted title not once, but three times during this school year. Known in the house for her delicious baked goods, beautiful artwork, and encouraging post-it notes, CFA senior Shannon Chapman is perhaps best known for her altruistic, caring spirit. Also the Vice President of the HER House, Shannon has been living in the HER House for four semesters and will be extremely missed when she graduates at the end of this semester!

The kitchen becomes a place of conversation- I love learning about everyone’s lives. We are a family!

Cooperative- generally speaking, it includes a willingness to help others and respect the house and its mission. A cooperative environment is also a supportive one.
