For Shepard, Its Been About "SERVICE"

At 76 years old, Dr. Shepard continues to teach and mentor. His primary focus is to enable others, especially Black students, to become all they are destined to be and operate with a mindset that, "If he can, so can I."

His recent project was mentoring two young, Black scholar-athlete football players at Oklahoma Baptist University (OBU) in Shawnee, OK. Click here to view the session.

In a desire to know more, he was asked by his community to share more about HBCUs (Historical Black Colleges and Universities), Shepard shared a two-part series on the legacy of what he calls, "HBCUs: American National Treasures." Click here to view Part 1 of his 2-part presentation.

About the Mural at the Bottom: In 2022, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) renovated the 6th floor of their building in Rockville, MD. Based on Shepard's work inside and outside of the Agency, a decision was made to place a mural of him on a wall in the newly renovated cafeteria. The mural includes Shepard's motto of one concentrating on their capabilities more than on their limitations.
