Shana grew up at Southport Presbyterian Church and now is blessed to work here too!  Shana has a Bachelor’s Degree from Indiana University and a Masters of Education from Indiana Wesleyan.  She was a language arts teacher for 20 years and then, decided to pursue a Building Level Administrator’s degree from Indiana Wesleyan University and became the Principal at Southport Presbyterian Christian School.

She is married to Jim, a science teacher at Franklin Central High School.  They have three children, Liz, Rachel and Jacob, and a black lab named Scout!

Her husband, Jim, got the family hooked on beekeeping, so that is one interest that they all share.  Shana also enjoys knitting for the prayer shawl ministry, cooking and making things with beeswax and honey when she gets some spare time.
