School of Education students nominated to the Homecoming Court

The School of Education is proud to have two students nominated to the Homecoming Court.

The School of Education is thrilled that two students were nominated to be on the Homecoming Court. 

Molly Sweeny is a senior Education major from Matthews, N.C. Elon’s education program was one of the strongest she had investigated, and after visiting Elon, Sweeny knew she wanted to be a student here. In her school placements, Sweeny enjoys working with children, and like most teachers, loves to see a child grasp a concept or make progress. She is already applying for teaching positions for when she graduates. Professor Marna Winter, who chairs the Education Department, escorted Molly during half time of the Homecoming football game.

Shelby Allen is a human service studies major and minoring in teaching and learning.  Like Sweeny and others, Allen fell in love with Elon’s campus, people, and opportunities.  She also has family ties, including an uncle who graduated from Elon. When she graduates, Allen plans to work as a school counselor, and the background she has gained from her coursework in the teaching and learning minor will certainly benefit and inform her work.

We are so proud of Molly Sweeny and Shelby Allen for their nominations to Homecoming Court and for representing the School of Education so well!
