Salina Central’s Shelby Mammott – Athlete Spotlight Presented by Jean Curry Shelter Insurance

Senior Shelby Mammott is a member of the dance team at Salina Central High School and future Butler University dancer where she received a scholarship to study dance. Her path to Salina Central and Butler started in the third grade. 

“I started at Tamara Howe School of dance taking one class a week. Eventually, I fell in love with the art form and work out that it became a serious commitment for me, inside and outside of school,” said Mammott. 

A very active student, Mammott is involved in Link Leaders program, National Honors Society and Kansas Honors Scholars. 

Mammott has enjoyed her time at Salina Central dancing and practicing with her teammates. 

“My teammates are everything to me.  After being on the squad for the past four years and becoming a co-captain, I feel obligated to take care of every single one of them! I am always open to helping them anything whether that be school or dance related,” said Mammott. “One of my favorite moments from this season so far, is being announced as a captain at our first football game. It truly felt surreal when they announced my name and Hannah Jones’ name before we danced. I know there will be so many more memorable moments this year.”

Her mother has been a huge influence in her life. 

“She has been with me through everything bad and good. When I am performing, she is always there, cheering me on and being my number one fan. When it seemed as if everyone in the world didn’t believe in me, my mom did, with no exceptions.”
