Miss Missouri's Outstanding Teen 2012
As the official spokesperson for Missouri KidsFirst, Shelby works to advocate for child abuse and awareness through incorporating this non-profit's mission within presentations to various groups and organizations. She also works to implement the Missouri KidsFirst "Pinwheels for Prevention" campaign state wide. "Piinwheels for Prevention" is a campaign that works to raise awareness of preventing child abuse and neglect, and the pinwheel represents hope, health and happiness- what we all wish for children to experience. Shelby encourages community members to contribute to children in crisis by purchasing their own pinwheel, and creating a "Pinwheels for Prevention" garden withing their community.
