Alumni Spotlight: Shani Sterling
by Amy Elizabeth

I first met Shani Sterling as the program coordinator for Houston Community College – Spring Branch in 2011. As a young educator fresh out of graduate school, Shani offered me a position as an adjunct helping to launch my journey into academia. Now at Lamar University – Shani’s alma mater – I had the privilege of speaking to her regarding her journey since attending the university and how she launched her career in dance.
