Ashleigh Daniels, a history major from Marthaville, has been awarded a 2016 Louisiana Police Jury Association Scholarship. The $500 scholarship will support Daniels as she works toward a degree.
“I am paying for school on my own, so this scholarship is important to me,” said Daniels, who has a 3.97 grade point average. “To get this kind of recognition for the work I have done so far means a great deal to me.”
In addition to excelling academically, Daniels is assistant editor of The Potpourri, Northwestern State’s yearbook, and a member of the Natchitoches-Northwestern Symphony Orchestra where she plays viola. Daniels is a member of Phi Mu Fraternity, Alpha Lambda Delta, Phi Kappa Phi, Order of Omega and Demons Support Demons.
“College is something you only do once so I feel like to get the most value, you should take advantage of every available opportunity,” said Daniels. “The real life experience you get means so much. At first, I didn’t want to get involved, but once I started, it added so much to my college experience.”
Daniels will graduate in May and hopes to begin law school this fall.
