ASHLEY INGRAM LR CHRISTIAN
Ashley Ingram racked up a ton of Spanish awards during her time at Little Rock Christian and plans on making Spanish her major at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville while also working toward a degree in pre-dentistry. “I’ve always been interested in Spanish,” Ingram said. “I took it all four years in high school. I plan to use it and the dental degree in a Spanish-speaking country. It’s something different, but I’ve always wanted to do something that wasn’t common.”
Some of Ingram’s awards include: the Foreign Language Distinguished Honors Spanish IV as a senior, and Honors Spanish III Most Outstanding Student and the National Spanish Exam Award as a junior.
Ingram also spoke volumes on the volleyball court. She was the Lady Warriors’ leader in both aces and digs during her junior and senior seasons.
“I never got tired of it,” Ingram said. “Playing volleyball taught me a lot about how to be a leader. It’s a good sport to learn how to play as a team and interact with others. If one person isn’t interacting, you’re not going to be successful.”
Ingram played volleyball, not only with her high school team, but with her club team, too. And despite the number of hours she spent honing her volleyball
skills, she also proved to be an excellent student.
“I’m most proud of how I was able to play as much volleyball as I did and still do so well with my classes,” said Ingram, who scored a 31 on her ACT.
Ingram also logged plenty of community service time. She completed more than 70 hours of service through events involving central Arkansas hospitals.
“I loved working with the Hope Lodge and getting to know the cancer patients,” Ingram said. “It became very personal and it was very rewarding.”
Ingram said her favorite classes usually involved math, but that her senior English class was “very interesting.”
“It was very challenging, but I became a much better writer because of it.”
