The Master Class Series returns to St. Louis Community College-Forest Park with two dynamos in the health care industry — Teri Murray, the dean of the School of Nursing at Saint Louis University, and JoAnn Shaw, vice president and chief learning officer at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

How did these two women get where they are today, shaping the future of health care education in Missouri? Those secrets will be shared at the first fall presentation on Thursday, Sept. 13, from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in the Mildred E. Bastian Center for the Performing Arts, 5600 Oakland Ave. Admission is free and the event is open to the public.

The Master Class presentation is in its second year as a speaker’s series sponsored by Forest Park’s Business Club, in collaboration with the St. Louis Business Journal. The series made its debut last spring with six prominent local figures who shared their secrets of success in such varied fields as TV news broadcasting, funeral service, a restaurant that’s the subject of a national cable television reality show, aviation management and nonprofit community service.

Murray, a past president of the Missouri State Board of Nursing (appointed by two Missouri governors), currently chairs the task force to revise the board's minimum standards for nursing education. She serves on the board of directors for the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and on the National Advisory Council for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Careers in Nursing Program.

She earned both bachelor’s and master's degrees in nursing from Saint Louis University as well as a master’s degree in education from the University of Missouri-Saint Louis, a Ph.D. in higher education administration from Saint Louis University, and a certificate in management and leadership in education from Harvard University. Murray has received numerous awards and honors, including a fellowship from the American Academy of Nursing, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Executive Nurse Fellows, and the Salute to Excellence Healthcare Award for Stellar Performance.

Shaw has more than 30 years of experience in human resources administration, with an emphasis on change management, talent acquisition, employee-labor relations, human resources re-engineering and developing corporate “universities” for employee education. Shaw earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame de Namur, and a certificate in employee relations law from the Institute for Applied Management and Law in California.

She has received the American Hospital Association Best Practices Award four times. In 2007 and 2009, Shaw received the BEST Award from the American Society of Training Development for creating an innovative corporate university in healthcare. The American Hospital Association and American Society Human Resources for Health Care Administration also awarded her their Distinguished Service Award for outstanding leadership.

The second session is business-related. On Wednesday, Oct. 31, at 11 a.m., Maxine Clark, chief executive officer of Build-A-Bear Workshop, and Bill Menke, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Wehrenberg Theatres, will speak.
