Ashley October 2012 Student of the Month

Ashley, who works in Reference and Instructional Services, has been named the October Student of the Month for Rod Library. Winterset, Iowa, is her hometown.

Ashley plans to graduate in May 2013 with a Double Major in General Theatre and Music-Vocal Performance. She then plans to return for Graduate school the following fall semester. Ashley is participating in upcoming opera scenes in November including Amahl and the Night Visitors in which she will portray the role of Mother. In the spring, she will also be performing the role of Azucena, the gypsy in II Trovatore.

When asked about future goals, she said, “I hope to go out and perform opera nationally, and eventually teach music at the collegiate level.” She loves to travel and participates in hot yoga at Sol Yoga, which has been life changing.

Ashley has been at the RIS Desk since spring 2011. Her duties include a wide variety of responsibilities, such as assisting patrons with their reference needs, whether that be locating the material for research papers or locating the number for Pizza Hut.

Thank you for your hard work, Ashley, and congratulations on being chosen Rod Library Student of the Month for October 2012.
