LSC-Tomball Student Engagement Staff

Meet our incredible staff!

Shannon Marino- Director

I have had the honor to serve as the Director of Student Engagement for 17 years at Lone Star College-Tomball. I had previously worked at Stephens College, The University of Missouri, and Georgia Tech doing programming and events. I am married, and we have one son who is 22 years old who is an LSC-Tomball student and is actively involved on campus. If you come by the office, you will always hear me laughing since it is one of my favorite things to do. I know I have the best Student Engagement Staff in the Lone Star System and they work tirelessly to provide opportunities for students to be active and engaged on campus!  I am also the advisor of the Student Activities Board (SAB).  The group of dedicated student leaders plans and hosts numerous events every month for their fellow students.  My goal is to provide our students with an extraordinary experience during their time at LSC-Tomball.

Natalie Shipula- Graphic Designer, Student Success

Hello, I’m Natalie Shipula. I’m a proud United States Veteran. During my time in the Air Force, I lived in Japan, Korea, and was deployed twice to the Middle East. After my military time, I went on to pursue my dreams. I graduated from Penn State University with an associate degree in Business and then went on to get a bachelor’s degree in fine art from Youngstown State University. Having over 10 years of professional experience as a graphic designer and over 5 years of professional experience as a still life and product photographer, art is pretty much all I do. My hobbies include painting watercolors, driving my 1974 Hot Pink Super Beetle, and spending as much time as I can outside doing whatever. I am from Pennsylvania, but I recently moved to Texas from Baltimore MD. I am so excited to be part of Lone Star College and the Student Engagement Team.

Trevor the Timberwolf- Mascot

My name is Trevor and I have been part of Lone Star College-Tomball since the spring of 2007.  As you may have noticed, I am a timberwolf.  My journey began in the mind of Shannon Marino, the Student Engagement Director for LSC-Tomball.  She realized that in order to inspire school spirit among the students there had to be a uniting factor.  Thus I came to be part of this great college!  I enjoy long walks on the beach volleyball court, meeting all of the awesome students at LSC-Tomball, and attending LSC-Tomball sports games, events, and community events.
