Renae Shawgo, Secretary
Dr. Renae R. Shawgo is an Associate Professor of English at Clarion University of Pennsylvania. She resides in Grove City, Pennsylvania, with her husband, children, and puppy Luna. Dr. Shawgo has degrees from Geneva College, Slippery Rock University, SUNY Albany, and Indiana University of Pennsylvania. If Dr. Shawgo is not found grading papers, writing essays or poetry, gardening, or walking in the woods, she is usually found in the kitchen making some calorie-filled dessert for the family; her baking hobby is only slightly offset by her obsession with running 5Ks (fifteen 5Ks in 2019 alone). Dr. Shawgo has coached within the Grove City Athletics Club elementary cross country and track & field programs for several years now; she has three young children who have been an active part of “run club” for the last five years. In fact, it was her daughter Elizabeth’s interest in running that convinced Dr. Shawgo that maybe, just maybe, she could become a runner, too. For 2020 Dr. Shawgo is upping her running game and has added a 5-mile run, a 10K, a 12K, and a half marathon!
