Shannon Salzman

I’ve had countless opportunities and experiences at Salem that have prepared me to take charge of my own future. I’ve been able to do a little bit of everything I am interested in, including internships in Washington, DC; organizing a volunteer mission trip to the Dominican Republic; taking leadership positions in clubs on campus; and participating in national and international conferences and competitions. I will continue to be empowered by Salem’s sisterhood and all the support I’ve received here long after I graduate.
