FRONTLINE FRIDAY
KU is proud of alumna Shannah Steel, who is a frontline worker in Tennessee. Shannah graduated in 2000 with a degree in biology/pre-med. She currently works as an emergency room physician and also serves as the county medical examiner and medical director for the county EMS in Cheatham County. Her dream was to be a doctor in a small town. Thank you Shannah. #GoldenBearProud
