timberland apparel Emphasizing the need for education
“This is something that they can do that they’re going to have to work a little bit harder, they’re going to have to manage their time well,” said Coleman. “They really can do it, that I did it, I did it part time, I did it full time.”
Like Coleman, Catherine Shamion felt compelled to help others pursuing their education.
“When I first became superintendent there were a few female superintendents, now you see a lot,” said Shamion. “Some of the best mentors I’ve had have been some of the other women superintendents.”
She will retire in June 2018 and hopes young girls will pursue their own goals.
“I don’t know if today’s kids see the gender role as much as somebody growing up in, I grew up in the 60s, graduated from high school in the 70s, there were distinct gender differences in terms of power and things like that,” said Shamion. “I don’t know that little girls today see the same picture I did when I was a little girl, you know, I think it’s changed.”
