Becky Hunt

Development Officer

Hi, I’m Becky! I’ve been a passionate supporter of SSF for 20 years as a Board member and House Champion. After 30 years in hotel management and sales, I’m excited to contribute even more as a member of the SSF Development Team. When not at SSF, you might find me on a plane to Pittsburgh to see my grandsons.

Teresa Turner

Director of Student Affairs – Central Florida

Hi, I’m Teresa and I am the Director of Student Affairs for our Central Florida Campus! In my role I am lucky enough to meet our students during the interview process and hear their powerful stories. But the real joy comes in watching them grow into these highly productive adults who are out there every day achieving their dreams. My time with SSF goes beyond the word rewarding because the impact our residents have made on me is something I will always carry with me.

Shawn J. Woodin, Ed.D.


With years of experience directing scholarship programs and student housing, I am thrilled to be SSF’s President/CEO. Our residents inspire me to elevate the foundation’s profile and attract new supporters to our cause. When not at SSF, I spend time with my wife and family—and together we occasionally travel to far-flung places to visit friends and family.
