Shianne Kennedy '13 & William Kennedy '13

Featured photo for Shianne Kennedy The summer before I started college, my mom was trying to get me excited about leaving home (and my boyfriend at the time) and somehow she found some website to try and connect with other people who were going to clu that year. I remember her looking through other people's pictures trying to get me involved and she specifically mentioned a hot swim guy. Fast forward 6 months or so, it's my second semester at CLU and I'm Facebook friends with this guy I've never actually met probably cause of some CLU group my mom added me to or something. He sees on Facebook that I'm baking brownies in my dorm, asks for some, and I tell him to come on over! After meeting, we start talking and eventually start dating. After getting to know him for a few months and seeing some of his high school swim pictures, I realize that I'm pretty sure it's the same guy my mom was trying to get me excited about over the summer! And funny enough, his parents actually met at CLU as well. Now we've been together for 9 years, married for 3, and we have a beautiful daughter together!
