Alumni Named Top 20 Under 20
December 4th, 2012
Congratulations to recent St. Pius X alumni Shockley Nunnery and Keller Sheppard who have just been named Atlanta INtown’s 20 Under 20 honorees. The program recognizes students who have gone above and beyond in order to give back to the community. The pair will be featured in the publication’s January 2013 issue and will attend a reception honoring the winners.
Shockley and Keller are co-founders of the Lighthouse Foundation’s eyeglass recycling program Operation I Care. The group was founded in 2009 with the goal to collect eyeglasses to donate to those in need. Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010, the group was able to deliver over 300 pairs of glasses to Port-au-Prince. Since 2009, Operation I Care has collected over 2,768 pairs of glasses, all of which have been cleaned, sorted, and delivered to free clinics and places of need.
Currently, Shockley and Keller are attending college at the University of Georgia. They have taken the program with them in hopes that it will expand even further.
