Hello!  My name is Anthoni Anna Wardlaw, a junior majoring in psychology/pre-med (specifically clinical psychology), with aspirations to attend medical school and become a physician, specializing in the branches of psychiatry and possibly cardiothoracic surgery.

Before arriving at Alabama State University, I attended Stephen F. Austin High School in Sugar Land, Texas, where I was an honor student who was involved in golf, theatre, and the student council.  I am also certified in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel due to taking a dual-credit computer course during my senior year.

I have accomplished a number of hours in volunteer work.  Some of that work includes managing a Back to School “Backpack” Drive for the NJB Foundation, helping facilitate a Teen Health Summit for Young Mothers titled Young Mothers Don’t Quit! (YMDQ), assisting my golf coach as a trainer with the younger golfers, and shadowing Dr. Gregory Shannon, MD in his Gastroenterology Clinic at Memorial Hermann located in Sugar Land, Texas.  I also volunteer with my mother on Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve to feed the homeless at Super Feast with the City Wide Club at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston, Texas, where thousands are served with not only traditional hot nutritious meals but also clothing, household items, shoes, blankets, coats, flu shots, medical examinations, food baskets, haircuts, new toys, etc.

I chose to attend Alabama State University because I received the Alabama State University Incentive Academic Scholarship and it was the university that my mother attended and graduated.   Since arriving, I have been on the Dean’s List and maintained a 3.9 grade point average.  I am a member of the Psychology Club, TPaIDA (Tropical Pathology and Infectious Diseases Association) and The Hornet Tribune. 

I chose to work with The Hornet Tribune because I enjoy it and because I hear first hand about the things that go on not just in the world but around this campus.

I would definitely encourage other students to work with The Hornet Tribune so they can become involved and have their voices heard.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Hello, my name Jessica M. Jeanlys, a sophomore early childhood education major from Monroe, Louisiana.  Before arriving at Alabama State University, I attended North Clayton High School in College Park, Georgia where I was very active in organizations such as Essence of Sisterhood and Future Business Leaders of American.
The daughter of Sandra Clemons and Melvin Strong, I selected Alabama State University as my institution of higher education because it has always been held in high esteem in terms of higher education.  I wanted to be a part of a student body that cared about its education and I wanted to be around individuals that craved knowledge and becoming aware of the world around them.
I chose to work with the Hornet Tribune to refine and gain valuable people skills. I enjoy working with those who are not in my major and learning about others as individuals.
I would recommend other students to work with The Hornet Tribune because there is a lot of learning that occurs once you join the staff. It is a great way to network with other students and learn more about the institution in its entirety. I have enjoyed working with the staff of The Hornet Tribune, and Mr. Dean is outstanding in what he does being that he is accessible to the students he works with. I’ve learned a lot from him while on staff.

Hello, my name is Ashlee Mitchell, a junior majoring in biology-pre-health from Fairfield, Alabama.  Before arriving at Alabama State University, I attended Fairfield High Preparatory School in Fairfield, Alabama, where I was involved in the Student Government Association and the National Honor Society.  I was also a member of Air Force JROTC, and the Auxiliary Line of the Band.  I graduated with an advanced diploma and a 3.54 grade point average.

My mother’s name is Ericka Gladden, who has been so supportive of my choice to attend Alabama State University because I was so unsure as to where I wanted to pursue my formal higher education. I said a prayer and Alabama State University was the answer.

Since arriving at Alabama State University I have been involved in a number of community service projects where I have volunteered my time and energy.  I am a member of the W.E.B. DuBois Honor Society and a member of The Hornet Tribune staff, a staff I decided to work with because I enjoy reading as well as passing information to others. The Hornet Tribune has nice content, so it is the best of both worlds for me. I have gained a deeper level of understanding regarding content presentation and style. This is useful to me as a student and in my career.

I would encourage other students to work with The Hornet Tribune because there are many positions where one would be happy and helpful. Each individual has skills. With The Hornet Tribune, you would be surprised at which position suits you. It is always nice to be around people who share goals, but also offer different ideas themselves.  Once I graduate from Alabama State University in 2022, I plan to attend graduate school and pursue a master’s degree in nursing so that I can focus on the health of women and children.

Hello, my name is Caitlyn Taylor Quinsey a senior majoring in elementary education from Mobile, Alabama.  Before arriving at Alabama State University, I attended LeFlore High School where I was a member of Future Business Leaders of America and the Marching Band.  Since arriving at Alabama State University, I am a member of Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society in Education, National Society of Leadership and Success, The Curve: Women Mentorship and empowerment organization, NAACP.

I am the daughter of Tremayne and Tracey Quinsey and once I complete my studies, I plan to teach for a few years and attend graduate school to obtain a graduate degree in elementary education.  I selected Alabama State University because of the excellent education program they have. Seeing that I am pursuing an elementary education degree, I wanted to go into a program that was strong and would provide me with the education I needed to succeed.

I chose to work with The Hornet Tribune because I believe it will provide me with skills that I can take with me into my career field. I also believe that this group of people I will be working with will be an inspiration to me.  The Hornet Tribune is a powerful and beneficial group that will help you build on certain skills while here at Alabama State University. There are several levels to this newspaper and there is something for everyone’s abilities. If you are new to what the Hornet Tribune does but want to be a part of it, they are willing to teach you with no hesitation.

My career goals are to teach for about ten years, become the vice principal or principal and one day, the superintendent.
