The first Cal Lutheran student to receive a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship, Sheets is teaching at two schools in the small town of Horn, Austria, northwest of Vienna. Her selection was made by the Austrian Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture in the spring and announced by the Fulbright Commission in Austria.
While attending CLU, Sheets was active in student government, serving as a student senator for two years. She also played the French horn in the University Wind Ensemble and served as a committee chair for Go Green, during which she initiated sustainability efforts on campus. Sheets, who traveled extensively while growing up in Oklahoma, spent her junior year abroad studying in Vienna, where she volunteered as an intern in an English class and tutored individual students in English.
Sheets graduated from CLU with departmental distinction and was elected to Psi Chi, the psychology honor society.
