Spotlight On: Master Chief Legalman Shannon Charles

By Lt. Jim Howland, Region Legal Service Office Naval District Washington

This week, we congratulate Master Chief Legalman Shannon Charles, who recently earned a Master of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from Saint Leo University. |

This accomplishment is the result of hard work and dedication since August 2011, when she began the program. Throughout the course of her studies, Charles specialized in Critical Incident Management, and has developed an interest in the ethical/prosecutorial misconduct field.

These skill sets will directly contribute to her new mission as Senior Enlisted Leader at Region Legal Service Office Naval District Washington. 

She thanks Cmdr. Robert Anselm, Lt. Cmdr. George Lucier and Lt. Sean Thompson for their support and encouragement along the way. Notably, Charles' days in the classroom are not over, as she soon hopes to enroll in a doctorate program, and plans to teach when she retires from the Navy. Bravo Zulu Master Chief Charles!"
