Hood College prides itself on a strong sense of community with not just students and faculty, but all who work behind the scenes. This year, the Graduate School recognized Shauwney Anderson as the recipient of the Staff Excellence Award. Shauwney, Student Accounts Manager in Hood’s Accounting Department, works with third-party billing and is the liaison for many groups, including the Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission (SACM), various corporate and government partners, Veterans Benefit Students, Doctoral Program Students and Educational Leadership Programs in Montgomery, Carroll, Berkeley and Washington County Public Schools. She has helped many students navigate the financial maze of graduate school and is always available for students and staff.
Although Shauwney has worked in accounting for 24 years, she has her Bachelor’s Degree in Automotive Technology. She met her husband working at an automotive dealership, and, after starting a family, decided to change career paths. She worked in accounting for several different companies before coming to Hood in 2011. The entire accounting team was impressed with her knowledge and work ethic, and was she was promoted to her current position in 2015. We are thrilled to have her at Hood!
