Shannon Shoots, former community affairs team member for Arizona Public Service, joined Northern Arizona University as community relations director earlier this month.

“NAU and the Flagstaff community have been my home for 20 years,” Shoots said. “I’m looking forward to blending my love for this community with my love for NAU and continuing to improve our town and gown relations.”

Shoots is a graduate of NAU and was a 2015 member of the Northern Arizona University Lumberjack Athletic Association. She also serves on multiple community-based boards and committees including the Greater Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce Education and Workforce Development Committee. Shoots is currently the Coconino County Parks and Recreation Commissioner for District Four.
