REM Award Honorees (2003) — Shannon Courtois (INSIDE OUT Playground & Preschool)

Tonight we honor Shannon Courtois. Shannon has served INSIDE OUT Playground as treasurer for the past three years, assisting with all the “behind the scenes” work that must be done to ensure IOP operates efficiently in all ways.

We can always count on her to help with events and projects even though she already graciously donates many hours laboring over the bookkeeping and financial management of the playground. Her assistance is an invaluable part of our successes!

Shannon graduated from Waterville High and earned her B.S. from the University of Southern Maine. She then went on to achieve her Master’s Degree from Thomas College. Now she works for Pine State Distributors, in addition to being a wife and mother. Her children — Kelsey, Logan, and Remy— are 4, 2, and 2 years old.

Note: Citing “pressures of trying to stay open coupled with the state of our local economy,” the INSIDEOUT Playground closed in November 2009.
