Mrs. Western Plains International®

Lisa Shannon

1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
Chasing my dreams. As Walt Disney said, All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them. Achieving small daily goals will move me closer to my dreams every day. I know that with hard work and determination, my dreams can become reality.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
Theres not anything better than a ride with my husband through the beautiful Black Hills from the back of a motorcycle. We are so lucky to live just outside of Wind Cave National Park, Custer State Park and our National Monument, Mt. Rushmore. The views are incredible and a ride through this beautiful scenery for a lunch date is perfect!

3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
Even the smallest gesture such as offering someone a smile can make a difference. Any age, whether a child or the elderly can benefit from a simple smile to brighten their day, and a returned smile will certainly brighten mine.

4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
I lost my father to a heart attack the day my husband and I were moving to South Dakota. On his kitchen counter, was a card he left for me that said, The stars exist so we may know how high our dreams can soar. I will cherish it always, as it serves as a reminder to always chase my dreams, and to keep my gaze up toward heaven.
