About Shelley

Shelley Lyons - Administrative Officer for Grants AdministrationShelley Lyons is glad to be back on campus as she is a Virginia Western alum, and has served as the Administrative Officer for Grants Administration at Virginia Western since early 2022. Prior to VWCC, her career focus was within the Human Services and Arts fields.  She wrote her first grant in 1996 on a whim and has continued to plan and learn since that time.  She most enjoys  seeing a well-planned project come to fruition, where funder, project manager and beneficiaries can all feel success and see impact.
