CREATIVE ARTS INSTRUCTOR
Lovely is the best word to describe Emily Shade. She is a lovely, sincere, sweet person whose bright smile reflects her inner beauty. Having been associated with PFDC for 13 years, Emily has always been a gentle sole, who elicits kindness in all she does. Her grace and kind demeanor has made her a friend to all the campers with which she has been both a Jr. Leader and Staff member. Emily has quietly taken over the art barn with a joy she displays in the projects she has created for campers of all ages. It is her dedication to her job, her independent spirit and her determination to achieve that has earned her the distinction of Staff of the Summer for 2017.
