Howdy! My name is Paul (Lance) Shannon and I am the Southern Region Representative on the OCF Student Advisory Board. I attend Saint Silouan's Orthodox Church in College Station, Texas. I am a junior at Texas A&M University where I am majoring in Political Science. Also, I am currently enrolled in ROTC and will, upon graduation, serve as an Officer in the U.S. Army. I have been involved in OCF since my arrival at college and have shared many wonderful experiences with fellow students both at A&M and many other schools around the nation. This has allowed me to grow spiritually closer to Christ by helping me not only stay involved in the Church but also to learn many new things as I begin my adult life. OCF has also helped me stay in touch with many old friends while making many wonderful new ones. I would like to see that everyone has the opportunities I have been blessed with.
