“Shenethia’s contributions to S&T – not only as a member of the Chancellor’s Cabinet, but also as an important and highly visible advocate for diversity in all its forms and in inclusive hiring and decision – making processes – have placed Missouri S&T in a position of strength and future success. She dedicated countless hours to ensuring that traditionally under-represented and marginalized groups had a voice that was heard and embraced at the highest levels of university leadership.

As Director of Human Resources, Affirmative Action Officer, she was responsible for providing leadership in all personnel matters at our institution. She was instrumental in developing our fundraising project and played a major role in developing, initiating and implementing an outreach program.

“There are three areas of Shenethia’s work with our office that are particular relevant to senior management and executive positions: her ability to plan, coordinate and implement our office’s cultural diversity plan, her skill in working with legislators and agency personnel and the subject areas in which she worked as a member of an audit team.
Sometimes in audit work there are situations which make communication difficult. Shenethia demonstrated excellent client relations skills while performing her cultural diversity responsibilities, and her very strong presentation skills were effective with staff and legislators.”
