Christine Shelton

Christine Shelton


Hello, my name is Christine Shelton, a senior English major who graduates in May 2021.  Before arriving at Alabama State University, I attended and graduated from Thornton Fractional High School in Calumet City, Illinois.  While there, I was a member of the Junior Board, Senior Board, Student Council and the National Honor Society.  I served as vice president of my junior class and was engaged in athletics as I played tennis and was selected as the Most Valuable Player of the badminton team during my senior year.

The daughter of Jacquelyn Jackson and Christopher Shelton, I initially chose to attend Alabama State University because I heard that they had a great education program, since I aspire to be an English teacher one day.  Upon my arrival, I have been active in the National Society of Leadership and Sucess (NSLS), UNITE, The Hornet Tribune and the co-curriculum designer for a volunteer organization called Read and Reign.  After graduation, I plan to attend graduate school where I will pursue a master’s degree in English education.

I chose to continue working for The Hornet Tribune because it is a journey I embarked upon during my freshman year, and I had to see it through until the end. Being apart of the staff has not only helped my writing flourish, but I have grown as well. Coming to college, I had no idea what the climate would be like, but The Hornet Tribune quickly helped me to acclimate, and ultimately, set a positive tone for my college career.

I would recommend working for The Hornet Tribune to every student because it teaches discipline, puts you in a position to make lasting relationships and several connections on and off-campus, and essentially, you could learn a new skill that could potentially land you a job in the future.

Dasani Stallworth

Executive Assistant

Hello, my name is Dasani Stallworth, a sophomore majoring in finance and accounting.  Before arriving at Alabama State University, I attended Charles Frederick Vigor High School in Prichard, Alabama.  While there I was a member of the Future Business Leaders of America, where I served as vice president, the Family, Career, Community Leaders of America and the Culinary Program.  I was enrolled in Advanced Placement Classes and graduated as an honor student with a 4.0 grade point average.

The daughter of Demetricus Jordan and France Stallworth, I selected Alabama State University because I heard that it had an excellent business school and I have members of my family that are enrolled at the university.  Upon arrival, I was a member of the First Year Leaders Empowerment Academy, and this year, I became a member of the National Association of Black Accountants, Collegiate 100, and an intern with the Student Government Association.

I joined The Hornet Tribune because I saw it as an opportunity to network and make long-lasting connections.

I would advise other students to become members of The Hornet Tribune because they will gain an opportunity to connect with the great staff and display their skills.

My aspiration in life is to become the chief executive officer of my own company.
