What is your favorite Murray State Tradition?

Shelby Hubbard

What is your favorite book and why?
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. I read the book in 5th grade and fell in love with the book’s famous quote “Stay Gold.” The book reminds me that the harsh realities of life should never change me into a cold person, and to always keep my positive outlook on life-to stay gold.

Who is your favorite professor and why?
Dr. Janice Super from the Bauernfeind College of Business. Last year, when I was looking for a faculty mentor to work with me on my research I was very nervous. I knew that I wanted to study race relations in organizations but wasn’t sure if I could find a professor that would be interested in my research interests. Even though Dr. Super hadn’t had any experience in researching race relations in organizations, she was still eager to work with me and support my research interests.

What’s something you’ve accomplished at Murray State that you’re most proud of and why?
I have managed to make the Dean’s list every semester I have been at Murray State. I am proud of this accomplishment because every semester has presented challenges for me and I have still managed to do well academically.

Who has influenced you the most in your life and why?
My mother has influenced me the most. She has taught me to be strong during times of adversity and that no matter how bad things may seem, it will always get better. There have been so many times that I just wanted to give up but she never let me.

What’s an interesting fact about you that would surprise most people?
Most people are surprised when I tell them that I am a business management major who has no intention of being a manager.

Where is your favorite spot on campus?
The quad. There is nothing like relaxing on the quad on a warm and sunny day.

What is your favorite quote?
“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” –Maya Angelou

 Shelby Says:

“I have accomplished so much while I have been at Murray State and I still have about two more year to go! I don’t plan on stopping my campus involvement here. I still have so many other organizations I want to join on this campus!”
