Ashley Gangwish

Gillette College Foundation’s Scholar Spotlight!

Meet Ashley Gangwish, recipient of the Education Scholarship (Dyslexia Summit) through the Gillette College Foundation.

Ashley comes to us from Casper, Wyoming.  She is 30 years old with a sweet 8 year old daughter.  She is a full-time student and works part-time at Pizza Carrello.  She is currently majoring in elementary education and will graduate from Gillette College in May 2019.  Her goal is to complete her education at Black Hills State University.  Ashley’s long term goals include teaching and being a homeowner.

The scholarship Ashley received has made it possible for her to obtain an education and not have to worry about paying for both schooling and bills.  In her time with Gillette College, Ashley has had her eyes opened.  She has been encouraged to do better and to keep going, and is hopeful her hard work and dedication will impress upon her daughter and positively influence her to go to college, as well.

Ashley’s words of advice to other students is, “Keep working towards your goals no matter what.”  Her favorite thing about being a Gillette College student is the entire education department.  Angela Sandy (former education instructor), Teresa Stauffer (education department), and Megan Rourke (math department) are all examples of teachers she wants to be one day.

The Gillette College Foundation wishes Ashley Gangwish all the success in the world as she continues on her educational path to fulfilling her dreams!
