Shelby, a junior, has attended Brunswick Academy since the 6th grade. She is a successful student in the Academic Program.

Meanwhile, Shelby played JV Softball her 7th and 8th-grade years and received the Sportsmanship Award. During her Sophomore year, Shelby committed to another sport; she played JV Volleyball and earned an award for Most-Improved.

Outside of school, Shelby is very active in her church youth group. She goes on mission trips with her church every year and helps with food pantries and reconstructing homes.
