Shonra McManus: Media Specialist

     I was an academic librarian for many years, working at Barton College, UNC-Asheville, and Mars Hill College, before I came to Asheville Catholic. Although I had loved working with college students, there was something about teaching young children that grabbed me, and made me feel like I found my home. I always tell the students I have the best job in the school – books and computers – what more could you want!


     I graduated with a B.A. in History from the College of William and Mary, and received my M.S.L.S. from UNC-Chapel Hill. I met my husband Kevin in Chapel Hill, and our daughter has continued the tradition by heading there for college – Go Heels! I feel very blessed to be part of the Asheville Catholic community.
