Hello and welcome!

My name is Hannah Williams-McNamee, and I’m a Success Coach for the Shepherd Success Academy. I’m excited to tell you more about our program!

The Shepherd Success Academy (SSA) is a unique opportunity geared to help First Year students with their transition from high school to college. During this semester-long program students will receive additional support through their first year.

Participating in SSA offers the following benefits:

Weekly meetings with a personal success coach who will work with you throughout your first semester at Shepherd

Creating a personalized success plan with your coach developed to help them maintain good grades and positive relationships on campus

Connecting you with other key campus resources

Receiving priority class registration, and one graded credit, contingent upon participation in the SSA group meetings during the first semester

Welcome to Shepherd University! We look forward to working with you. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions about our program.

Best wishes,

Hannah Williams-McNamee
Success Coach
