Seniors Brandon Allred, Katie Shelor Generals of the Month for May

Washington and Lee University seniors Brandon Allred and Katie Shelor will be recognized at the Generals of the Month presentation on Wednesday, May 9, at 12:30 p.m. in the Marketplace in Elrod Commons.

This is the final CSS presentation of the academic year. They will begin again monthly in September 2012, for the 2012-2013 year.

Allred, from Virginia Beach, Va., is a public accounting major and is a member of Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society. He was the executive treasurer of the 2012 W&L Mock Convention, managing all  funding (including the $500,000 budget) and coordinating all fundraising efforts. He also is a member of Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity.

Shelor, from Roanoke, Va., is majoring in journalism with a minor in creative writing. She is sports director and assistant programming director of WLUR radio, editor in chief of inGeneral Magazine, supervising a staff of 20, sports reporter for The Rockbridge Report, and intramural referee supervisor for W&L’s Campus Recreation. She is a member of Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society.

Generals of the Month is coordinated by the Celebrating Student Success (CSS) initiative and sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs to inspire engaged citizenship at Washington and Lee University.  CSS seeks to recognize students who are not typically or sufficiently touted for the depth and breadth they add to our campus community.

Allred and Shelor were selected by the CSS Committee, which is composed of students, faculty and staff. Any member of the campus community can nominate a W&L student at any time with the online form at go.wlu.edu/css.
