Sharon “Shari” L. Knight is an Administrative Assistant and supports the planning and logistical needs of the Manager and multiple teams within Educational Programs and Outreach. She works directly with the Manager of Educational Programs to handle scheduling and related needs. She coordinates the on-site school field trips for over 4,400 middle and high school students each year and arranges the National School on Neutron and X-Ray Scattering. She also assists with gate passes, requisitioning supplies, and other important logistics within the department.
Shari deeply enjoys enabling students to come and experience Argonne’s immersive programming, and her wish is that they take what they learn here and grow with it so they’ll want to pursue it further in their future academics and professions. In her spare time outside of Argonne, she likes to go on camping trips and in general spend time with her family.
