Steven married his best friend, Amanda Shannon, and they have three amazing kids! His daughter, Gabby, graduated from Wahoo High School in 2014 and attended Doane College on a volleyball scholarship before transferring to Lincoln. His son, Micah, will turn 8 in March 2019 and is currently a 2nd grader at Aurora Elementary. The Shannon’s are also excited to welcome another addition to the family, with Amanda expecting a little boy in February 2019!
Steven has had the pleasure to work with Fundraising University, Mike Bahun, and Colin Shockey, ever since its inception, as a coach with the Wahoo High School football team, where they saw, first hand, how the hard work, effort, and attitude that it takes to be successful on the field & court, translates directly into how a successful fundraising effort can transform a program!
When given the opportunity to work for Fundraising University, Steven jumped at the opportunity to continue to work with HS coaches and players to help them transform their programs by helping them to Dream Big, Raise More, Work Less! To better serve the Central Nebraska region, his family moved to Aurora, Nebraska and look forward to reconnecting with old friends and making many new ones, helping each of you elevate your programs through the power of Fundraising University!
