Ashley Palmer, a senior National Merit Semi-Finalist from Cedar Creek School, was our 2018 featured student for job shadowing day. After attending Legacy Day and other campus tour opportunities over the past year, Ashley participated this week in the Clinical Residency Center's "Taste of the TEAM" event where she was able to meet Dr. Laura Bostick and Mrs. Traci Walker to learn more about secondary education programs as well as join a Thursday afternoon UTeachTech class in the Think Tank.

We know that Ashley's parents, College of Engineering professor, Dr. Jim Palmer, and Gina Palmer, College of Education alumna, are very proud of Ashley and her many academic accomplishments, and we are very honored that she has chosen Louisiana Tech University to begin her college career. We would like to thank Cedar Creek guidance counselor, Stacey Hunt, for allowing us the opportunity to provide these experiences for Ashley and look forward to our continued partnership. Stay LOYAL BLUE, Ashley, and we'll see you soon at summer orientation!
