Let me introduce myself~ I am Shelle…

I will be working on The MC Blog… in bringing to you, our readers, updates on what is important to you.

My name is Shelle Michaels, and I profess to be a social networking guru with years of experience as Soldiers’ Angels Communication Officer. Being a volunteer for Soldiers’ Angels (www.soldiersangels.org) has not only been the right thing for me to do in support of the our nation’s service members and their families; it has become my passion. Through the countless hours I put into ‘MY soldiers’ at the local and national level, my efforts have not gone unnoticed by the North Dakota National Guard, North Dakota or Soldiers’ Angels as a whole.

In 2006 I was honored with the Martin Luthur King Jr. Service to North Dakota award and in 2007 I received the Distinguished Center of Influence for my support of the NDARNG 188th ADA JLENS Soldiers and the Outstanding Center of Influence for the support given the NDARNG 188th ADA SECFOR Soldiers that were deployed to Afghanistan. These awards are the top levels of recognition to be given to individuals in support based roles.

I am currently pursuing my graduate degrees at the University of North Dakota where I teach Public Relations classes in the School of Communication. My students learn how to turn theory into application as they often get involved through class work that focuses on Soldiers’ Angels or they end up volunteering on projects outside of class.

My daughters also, are stepping up as leaders in their social spaces, and I contribute this to their involvement in Soldiers’ Angels.

I live by the motto of Winston Churchill, ‘We make a living by what we do, but we make a life by what we give.”

If you need to get in touch with me, I am always available by email and your suggestions for this blog are appreciated. Let me know what you want to see on this site and how I can make this one of your best resources possible.  ShelleMichaels @ msn.com is the best way to reach me. Have a great day…until next time.
