Old Hand, New Role: Scott Shields

Scott Shields may be an old hand with MoCPA serving as the Public Institution Representative, but his plate has gotten a bit fuller these days.  With the webmaster position open, Scott easily slid into this position and has made some exciting changes to the MoCPA website!

Scott's Bio
Scott’s journey into Residential Life started by serving as an RA at Truman State University and then by earning his Masters degree in Student Affairs in Higher Education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. 

After working two years as a graduate assistant at Carnegie Mellon University Housing and five years in hall director positions at Mount St. Mary’s University (Maryland) and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Scott is a fifth year Area Coordinator at Northwest Missouri State University.  While he enjoys the traditional roles of his position (Hall Director supervision, leading committees and projects), Scott particularly enjoys being able to employ his technical skills to the benefit of the department through website and database development. 

Scott married his wife, Mary, in 2006 and together they have a Keeshond named Dakota and a cat named Grady.  In his spare time, Scott successfully completed the 2010 St. Louis Go! Half Marathon as a personal goal and has also gotten into amateur photography as a favorite hobby.
