Arcadia University honors Gallup alumna


GLENSIDE, Pa.—Lt. Shantel Blume ’13DPT of Gallup has been named to the Arcadia University biennial “40 Under 40.” Lt. Blume, a physical therapist at Indian Health Service, is one of the extraordinary professionals under the age of 40 who is making strides to bring change to their local and global communities, and to lead by example for the next generation of Arcadia alumni.

The 40 individuals are among the most promising, accomplished, entrepreneurial, and inspiring alumni, and they represent the diverse, global Arcadia community—across degrees, professions, regions, nationalities, interests, and involvements. The group is highlighted online at arcadia.edu/40Under40 and will be featured in an upcoming Arcadia Magazine.

“Each of these stellar professionals exhibits extraordinary creativity, leadership, and talent that fully represents the essence of the Arcadia experience and reflects the impressive caliber of professionals who graduate from the university,” Brigette A. Bryant, vice president of Development and Alumni Engagement at Arcadia, said. “It is an honor for us to present these 40 rising leaders who inspire our community and represent the very best of Arcadia.”
