Prospera Credit Union
Shonna was born and raised on a dairy farm in Brillion, WI. She attended college at Alfred University in upstate New York and graduated with an art degree. For the sake of practicality (and to afford rent), she started her career after graduation in sales training; fast-forward fifteen years to her current position as Director of Internal Operations for Prospera Credit Union. You might catch Shonna putting her art degree to good use as an Artist Instructor for Pinot’s Palette! She and her husband, Matt, live with their daughter (Ellanor) in Neenah. Tolkien, karaoke, art, & fashion… these are a few of her favorite things! Shonna is dancing to ensure the Sexual Assault Crisis Center’s important work in our community continues for those in need, and in the hope that through the Center’s continued efforts perhaps someday their services will no longer be needed at all.
Chuck Spencer, Valley Social
Chuck Spencer, co-owner of Valley Social, says his favorite dance is “the one that’s playing.” His energy and enthusiasm is what led him to become a teacher in 2003. Chuck graduated from Valley Social Ballroom Dance Teacher’s College and continues to train and polish his skills. Chuck’s talent as a dancer and teacher gives him a unique way to help the community. He has taken the stage as a professional dancer every year at Shall We Dance – since the very first year. Chuck also teaches charity lessons and performs for local businesses and non-profit organizations. He works closely with the Shooting Star Ballroom Dance Program – a program for area 5th and 6th graders, teaching social skills though ballroom dance. Chuck calls the Sexual Assault Crisis Center an “important and necessary” part of our community; he says: “I feel honored to be part of this event. I feel good knowing that all the hard work goes toward improving the Valley.”
