MC SPOTLIGHT 20/20

CHERNOH SHAW ’16

Tell us about yourself.

I am a senior sports management major, and I participate in a variety of activities on campus. I am a member of the football team as well as a member of three clubs: ABLE, SAAC, and BSU. I also participate in many community service-based organizations, such as the Special Olympics and the Boys and Girls Club of Bethlehem, where I serve as a mentor.

My favorite spot on campus is…

Probably the HUB, because is where I interact with all my friends and eat food.

What’s your favorite Moravian College tradition?

My favorite tradition is homecoming, because it is great to see all the alumni and families support us for the game.

One thing that many of my colleagues don’t know about me outside of my Moravian College responsibilities is…

I babysit my 8-month-old nephew. This is a very important aspect of my life because I value family bonding.

Have you given or received a #MyMoPaw yet?

Our class gave a MoPaw to George Bright, our new Athletic Director, because we wanted to give him a warm welcome to the Moravian community.

Finish this sentence: “When I grow up, I want to be _____.”

I want to work in the sports industry because I've always had a passion for athletics.
