Ms. Toni Lee
Director of Conference and Event Services
Toni Lee is both a proud Bobcat alumnus and employee. After a successful career in corporate event planning and production in San Diego, she returned home to Montana to be with family and friends. Toni eventually made her way back to her alma mater in 2007 and has been planning and coordinating conferences for the university ever since. In 2015, Toni earned the prestigious distinction of Collegiate Conference and Events Professional (CCEP) from the Association of Collegiate Conference and Events Directors-International (ACCED-I). Although Toni loves academic conferencing with all its exciting twists and turns, it just doesn't compare to her true love, a whitewater ride down a wild river, in Tallulah Blue, her trusty raft, followed by a campfire with friends and family under the big sky.
Ms. Shannon Barton
Event Coordinator – Registered Student Groups & Summer Housing
Shannon Barton moved to Montana in August 2016 for an internship with Montana State Sports Facilities. Shannon then graduated in December 2016 from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor's degree in Sport and Entertainment Management. She grew up right outside of Washington, D.C. in Rockville, Maryland so the mountains have been a real treat. In Shannon's spare time you will most likely find her trying something new. She has enjoyed getting outside to hike, camp, hunt and fly fish. Shannon is happy to be in Montana and even more happy to be a Bobcat!
