The Stand’s Board of Directors
Shanteashia Harris El
Shanteashia is a graduate of Henninger High School and holds two nursing degrees: a bachelors of science from the University of Rochester and a masters of science from Upstate Medical University. She currently works as a nurse practitioner. She has volunteered her time at Moorish Science Temple of America and in the past, with the Big Brother Big Sister program.
She loves traveling and religion.
She would like to see articles of religious, political, cultural, food (recipes) and health content featured in The Stand.
Dale joined The Stand as a board member this past month but has been connected with the publication since 2013. He was first featured in The Stand’s pages for being a local, published author of “The Day My Dawgs Ran,” a book he wrote while incarcerated. He wanted to share his personal stories about going down the wrong path as a way to encourage youth to make better choices. He next participated in The Stand’s recent summer long storytelling series From Where We Stand.
Now he is eager to be further involved as a board member. Harp is also a volunteer at the Mary Nelson Youth Center, Faith Hope Community Center and member of Citizen Action of NY.
