Mr. Andrew Shoffner, '97

Andy received his B.S. in Education from WCU in 1997. Following graduation, he attended a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer course which led him to a career in the computer arena. After some specialized training, he began work in a small local firm. Like many others, his income was affected by the problems which led to taking on four additional jobs. He began working for a company in 2001 that struggled for a couple of years before the hard work of Andrew and his colleagues began to pay off and the CEO took the company public. His responsibilities grew when he was named the project manager to deploy a large wireless network to the School District of Philadelphia. He is now vice president of the company, has offices in Philadelphia and West Chester and a staff of ten.

While at WCU, Andrew was an active student leader. He was involved in the Student Government Association, first as secretary and ultimately as president for two years. He was part of the provost executive search committee, a member of Theta Chi Fraternity, public relations chair for IGC and was a member of the PASSHE Board of Governors. He also worked as an orientation leader, as staff for Innovations (a non-alcoholic nightclub in Sykes Union), and as a Sykes Union staff member. He was voted Greek Man of the Year in 1997.

Andy has two children. His son, Mason, is in kindergarten and receiving “excellent” grades. Daughter, Marlena, a student of karate and guitar, just turned three. Andy and his children enjoy life in West Chester so much, they never left the borough.
