FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

​​

Mr. Shelton was once a homeless teen and was taken off the streets by a complete stranger. Reverend Clinton Jordan or “Slick” as Frederick used to call him, allowed Frederick to live with his family until Frederick was old enough to join the U.S. Navy.

​​

Frederick has never forgotten that kindness and the corporate motto of Shelton & Steele is “All ships rise with the tide. We shall not endeavor to have the largest ship. We are the tide.”  

​​

Mr. Shelton has been a regular volunteer at both Nellis and Creech Air Force bases for years, where he teaches those coming out of the military how to research jobs, interview effectively etc.

He has also volunteered at food banks and homeless shelters, and the Shelton’s have had at least one or two “house guests” living with them at a time for years.

These have been men, women and “At-Risk” youth who needed a safe place to stay or a hand up. Not a handout, just a hand up.

Frederick donates a portion of every fee he receives to Help of Southern Nevada (www.helpsonv.org), a non-profit that provides housing and other support services to those in need.

 

In his spare time, Frederick enjoys playing golf, chess, painting, reading, writing, and the ​​occasional evening playing Texas Hold ‘Em tournaments at casinos on the famous Las Vegas Strip.
