Daniel Bathrick, Owner of Snyder’s Shoes, Manistee & Ludington, MI

“Snyder’s Shoes is a family shoe store serving the Manistee and Ludington, Michigan areas since 1938. We specialize in quality footwear and a very high level of service. This includes friendly service from staff and an accompanying knowledge of our product ensuring that our customers receive the best quality footwear while experiencing a gratifying shopping experience.

Arielle has grown, matured, blossomed, and become a self assured young adult in her nearly two years as a staff member in our “shoe family”. She is kind, courteous, helpful, friendly, energetic, and knowledgeable. Her friendly attitude extended beyond her customers to the back room in her relationships with the fellow employees and management team. The learning curve for gathering and utilizing product knowledge came very quickly for Arielle.

I believe Arielle will have much to offer any employer in whatever career path she decides to pursuer. She has interpersonal gifts that will be obvious and prevalent in any work place situation that arises. We will miss her being a part of our team.

I would be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding Arielle. Please feel free to contact me.”

“Arielle Sheffield was a part of a student academic immersion experience which I helped lead to Cambodia during her undergraduate work. She participated fully in the immersion experience and did well in the class. She is a good team member, contributing to the good of the group and exhibits excellent creative skills. Arielle has a passion for those who are underprivileged or under-served and for justice issues. She adapted very well to cultural differences and thrived while in Cambodia. Our sojourn was three weeks of immersion in the culture of Cambodia. Any organization that has the ability to take advantage of Arielle’s skills and contributions will benefit from having her on their team.”

Ron Kopicko, University Chaplain, Spring Arbor University

“Arielle is a joy to know, a constant encourager and an outstanding student with an attractive personality who consistently cares for others. It is an honor to recommend her!”
