WITC-Superior announced business management student Kayla Anderson as this year’s Student Ambassador.
More than 20 years ago, the Wisconsin Technical College System started the Student Ambassador program, an initiative that recognizes outstanding student achievement.
Anderson distinguishes herself through community involvement, leadership qualities and a commitment to higher education. She began her WITC education in the nursing program, but took a break from her studies to begin a family. When she returned to the classroom, she found her niche with business studies. Anderson is proud of her academic choices, and the support she received from WITC faculty and staff.
"WITC did not give up on me," she said.
Anderson is the WITC-Superior Business Club President, Technology Engagement Club founding member, a College Activity Board member and the student representative for the Business Management Advisory Committee for the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 school years.
The 28-year-old mother of two from Maple is also a beef farmer and entrepreneur. She will represent the hardworking men and women attending WITC as she continues to balance her studies, work, family and social obligations.
Anderson said she is honored by this recognition.
"I hope when people hear my story, they will say ‘I’m just like her,’" Anderson said.
Paul Langford of Amnicon and Nikolaus Sauer of South Range made the dean’s list at Michigan Technological University.
Savannah Wolter of Barnes, Tanner Follis of Brule and Superior residents Daniel Burger, Lily Kline, Kelsey Krob and Rebecca Tunell made the dean’s list at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
