Hello everyone! My name is Ashleigh Ward and I am a Monday/ Wednesday sophomore. This is my second year on Verve and I am the Opinion Editor. I love hanging out with friends and helping the children's ministry at my church. On the weekends you can find me reading a book, talking with my sister or planning for a 4th grade Sunday school class. I absolutely love kids and plan to become a teacher at a public elementary school after acquiring my education degree at Kennesaw State University. Something I’m known for is loving ducks! I can’t remember when I started liking them, but you will never meet someone as passionate about these birds. I am incredibly excited for the new year and can’t wait to get started!
