Shawn Hatcher
Princeton, W.Va.

Shawn is a second generation Mountain Lion, but that is only one detail that finalized his decision to choose CU after graduating from Pikeview High School in 2017. The university also had the program of study he wanted, and its location meant Shawn could commute to save money. He is a Business Administration major with concentrations in management and finance. When Shawn isn’t in class, you’ll find him working in the business office as a work-study in the Accounts Payable office. Shawn says the real life experiences that professors share and the work experience he has received at Concord has prepared him for the kind of job he wants when he graduates, one similar to the job he currently does at CU. Education aside, Shawn says his favorite part about Concord is the people. “It felt like home from the time I stepped on the campus in 2017,” Shawn says. “Most of everyone is relaxed and will help out if you are in need.”

Not only was Concord close to home for Hannah, but due to the reputation of the university’s commitment to providing extensive scholarship opportunities for students it attracted her to Concord even more. She emphasizes that one of the best parts of the campus is the community of diverse people. While getting to meet people from all over the world during her time on campus, Concord has shown her that although we are all different, we still come together as one people. Majoring in Chemistry with the chosen route being the 3+1 pre-pharmacy plan, Hannah has always wanted to work in the medical field while being behind the scenes in some way. She is involved on campus with the Bonner Scholars Program as well as the Appalachian Leadership Education Foundation. “I would encourage a new student to come to Concord because you will get opportunities to meet new people, learn new things through picking one of the many options to study, and become a part of the comforting atmosphere created by students and faculty.”
