Award recipients are chosen from faculty nominations and activity and event participation records. 

Shepherd attended four cocurricular opportunities and was nominated by faculty members Lynn Shelly and Raymond Beisel as being among the most outstanding in the classrooms. She also had three previous honorable mentions from PACE in September, December, and January.
