“The years I spent at Hussian were some of the best of my life. It was like a family—a family of amazing, talented, artsy people who pushed me to be the best that I could be. I knew I belonged there the minute I stepped in the door for a tour—and at the end of my journey I felt so prepared for my career I couldn’t wait for it to begin. Hussian was an amazing experience and I am proud to be a part of their history.” – Michelle Sheppard, Class of 2002
