The Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs writes about Ohio University alum Shannon Hamelund ’14 in a story headlined “Executive MPA graduate’s experience marked by accomplishments through transitions.”

Hamelund earned a B.A. in Political Sciences from the College of Arts & Sciences at OHIO.

Shannon Hamelund’s experience in the Executive Master of Public Administration program has been marked by change. In addition to unpredictable adjustments from the COVID-19 pandemic, she also experienced personal change – specifically, living in four different locations while completing her degree.

“As the spouse of an active-duty military service member, there has been a lot of transience in my life over the duration of the program,” Hamelund said.  “I applied for this program while living in D.C., flew to Ohio for residencies pre-pandemic, completed most of the program in lower Alabama, and am finishing it from Seoul, South Korea.”
