Spring 2015 Graduates Shea

Shea Raftus will graduate in May from Stephen F. Austin University with a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism. He is an avid sports fan and LOVES to talk about sports, and cheering for his favorite teams.

Shea hosted the KSAU radio sports show for three semesters during the school year. He also was a DJ for the radio station. “My ultimate goal is to have my own sports talk radio show for a major network like ESPN or be a sports column writer for a website like Grantland. When I am established in my career and have enough money, I want to start a charity for children in the foster care system,” he said.

Gayle Jordan, PCHAS’ Advanced Education Coordinator, has worked with Shea since he came to PCHAS five years ago. “Shea has grown tremendously over the last five years, and I am so very proud of all he has accomplished and will accomplish in the coming years. He’s an amazing person,” she said.

Shea worked at PCHAS’ central office in Austin for several summers, and during the school year, reporting to Linda Bishop, Vice President for Finance and Administration.

“Shea has been such a blessing.  He scanned more than 10,000 documents to help us digitize our files. I am so proud of his accomplishments, and have enjoyed watching him grow.  I can’t wait to be in the audience when he receives his degree! He’s worked hard to meet his goals and I have no doubt he will exceed them and will be successful in life,” said Linda.

Congratulations Shea!
