Ashley Johnson from Trenton, MO, has been selected as North Central Missouri College’s Outstanding Student for June. Ashley, a Missouri A+ scholarship student, graduated in May with her Associate in Arts in Teaching (AAT) degree from NCMC. This fall, she will seamlessly transfer her two-year degree to Northwest Missouri State University to obtain a bachelor’s degree in secondary biology education.

Ashley was involved in SMSTA (student Missouri state teachers association) and an on-campus student worker in the Alexander Student Center. Her favorite classes were her courses with Instructor Cassie Cordray and Dr. Susan Stull. Ashley said, “I enjoyed their classes and the subject matter.” Ashley went on to say, “I like that NCMC is close to home and the small class sizes. I enjoyed my classes and the friendly environment.”

Each month, a student is nominated by a faculty or staff member to be featured as an Outstanding Student based on their dedication to educational success, attitude toward learning, and hard work in their field and activities.
