Success Stories: Alana Sigg

Image of Alana Sigg

I graduated with honors from Ashland in 2008 with a degree in Middle Grades Education. Since that achievement I have made great strides and been awarded with many recognitions that testify to the great education I received from my years at Ashland. Because of my test anxiety I struggled to pass the licensure exam for some time after graduation. Dr. Kommer encouraged me to keep trying and not give up on my dream to be the greatest teacher I can be. With his words of encouragement I continued working at the test, passed it and acquired full time employment Fall of 2010.
