It is with great excitement that the Shell Lake Arts Center announces the appointment of Alyssa Degner as the Operations Manager. Alyssa comes to us with great experience, knowledge, skills and talents which will help us move forward with our goals and plans.

Alyssa grew up in Shell Lake and attended the Shell Lake Arts Center as a Concert Band camper.  Later, she became a seasonal employee; working as a custodian. She attended DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana where she received a Bachelors degree in music. She is an excellent clarinet player. After college she spent a few years in Bloomington, Indiana and owned her own pet sitting business. During the Covid shutdown, she returned to the beautiful Wisconsin Northwoods. Prior to her work at the Shell Lake Art Center she taught English as a second language remotely to students around the world. As you drive between Spooner and Shell Lake, her parents own Bashaw Valley Farm and Storage where she still helps them out..

She is as excited to be here as we are to have her here.  Please join us in welcoming her to our team!
