The next outstanding recipient in our Scholar Spotlight series is Ashley Dixon from Huntersville. Ashley is a recipient of the NC Alpha Delta Kappa Student Achievement Scholarship. She graduated from Lake Norman Charter School and now attends Wingate University.
Ashley is a first generation college student and looks forward to studying science and math, her two biggest academic interests. She has also had a strong love of animals since she was a child, and hopes to one day be a veterinarian.
Ashley is always looking to help animals in need. Recently, she helped an injured duck recover and find its way back to its mother. “Even though my friends thought I was being ridiculous and didn't understand why I wanted to help the duck so badly, I honestly can't think of anything better that I could have done with my day,” she said.
