Shannon and Robert Hunt have over 40 collective years in the profession of education. Shannon has taught nearly 20 years as a high school English teacher and over 5 years as an adjunct professor at Kent State University. Robert taught 4 years as a middle school English teacher and has spent the rest of his career in administration with his most current role being a school superintendent.
Their passion for education is not the only thing they share. They have four children with their youngest being the true educator of the family. Hawken, as a baby, taught his parents what life truly has to offer through a life threatening battle with cancer. After Hawk received remission status at the age of 1, Shannon and Robert vowed to make a difference and stop living ordinarily; thus, they committed to living a lifextraordinary.
Lifextraordinary is not only a web-based solution for people who are experiencing an extraordinary event, but it is also a commitment to a better life which was modeled through Hawken’s story. The Hunt Family strives for no child and family to suffer from the horrible disease of cancer. As a result, they started Lifextraordinary, a non-profit organization, to help families and to support pediatric cancer research.
