Kathy Copeland (née Shelley) graduated from Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Science in Home Economics Education in 1976. She was born in Bellevue, Ohio to Harold and Dorothy Shelley.
After graduation, Kathy spent a year in Colorado where her denim gaucho and vest ensemble, which she had worn as a student at OSU, fit right in with the culture of the American West. Kathy paired the outfit with cowboy boots, of course.
In the lower gallery, Kathy’s construction class project is featured. She wore that during her teaching field experience.
