Significant Professional or Academic Accomplishments: Shante White is a 2008 graduate of Henninger High School in Syracuse, NY and the Le Moyne College S.T.E.P. program. Faced with a number of significant personal and family challenges which could very easily have derailed her, Shante willed herself to achieve success despite these challenges. Not only was she fully involved in the STEP program, she was captain of the girl’s track team, won several state titles in the discus and shot put, served on the Student Council, worked part time, and was consistently named to the high honor roll. While in STEP, she won first prize for her research project at the annual statewide conference. She also worked as a research assistant for Le Moyne College science faculty and received an award for her participation in workforce preparation activities. To culminate her high school career, she was designated a Gates Millenium Scholar by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. After graduation, she entered the University of Buffalo, where she is currently a senior in the Advanced Honors Nursing program working on her senior thesis which investigates the effects of alcohol and drug addictions upon families. At Buffalo, she is a member of C.S.T.E.P., the Honor Society of Nursing, and the women’s track team, where she has broken the school record in the women’s hammer throw and has won the MAC championship in that event. With a career goal of becoming a nurse anesthetist, she will graduate in June with a bachelor’s degree in Nursing, following which she will take her nursing boards to become an R.N.
