Shade, an attorney and partner with Beasley & Gilkison and 1998 graduate of DePauw University, is the recipient of the inaugural "Young Professional Award" from the Muncie, Indiana chapter of Women In Business Unlimited. The new award is "a way to recognize an emerging leader who shows excellence and is a role model for young women personally and professionally," says WIBU's Debra Jones-Price.

A story in today's Muncie Star-Press notes, "In accepting her award, Shade joked that it might be 'hard to believe as attorney that I'm at a loss for words.'"

A political science major at DePauw, Shade earned a law degree from Indiana University in 2001. This summer she received a Community Leadership Award from DePauw over Alumni Reunion Weekend.
