CAL Presidency

Amanda Shupe, CAL Student President


 CAL President


Amanda grew up in Centerville Utah, a small city just north of Salt Lake, as the second of seven children. She graduated in 2014 from Viewmont High school where she participated heavily in the arts programs, track and field, and served as a cross country captain. After high school she decided to attend UVU to be a part of the CAL program. After studying for a year, Amanda left on an LDS service mission to Irvine California for 18 months. Since returning home she has continued her studies in Art Education, specializing in painting, and I hope to be a high school art teacher as well as a representative for the arts in education on educational boards. 

Amanda loves seeing people achieve the impossible and helping them push past their personal limits. Aside from art Amanda also has a love for reading, soccer, running, singing, writing, hiking, working hard, and just spending time in the sunshine. She's engaged to marry Jairen Shupe in the beginning of August and could not be more excited for the many opportunities that are coming her way this next year
