President's Welcome

Shervon T. Lewis

Staff Council President, 2023-2024

I am excited to serve as your Staff Council President for the 2023-24 academic year. For the past 12 years at Emory, I have had the privilege of working in Campus Services Learning and Development, where I am currently the Manager of Employee Development Programs.  I continue to be amazed by the incredible stories these critical employees share with me every single day. 

This is my sixth year on the Staff Council and I am thrilled to share that this year’s theme will be Employee Humanity.   It is my goal to strengthen our commitment to One Emory’s People pillar by celebrating a culture of development and growth. Our Council will focus on the whole employee. I look forward to empowering staff to focus on their professional development, self-care, and wellness, making the most of Emory’s amazing available resources. I will also highlight members of our Emory staff community whose stories often go untold with the hope that we continue to learn more about each other.

In my presidential tenure, I hope that the Emory Staff community will find that I have applied knowledge in service to this community, cultivating a more nurturing environment, something that I have fostered in my workplace and my home. On a personal note, in my free time you will find me in a crowd cheering on my kids at their sports events because I’m “That Mom.”

Let’s start this journey of growth and development together!
