If your picture gets printed in the U.S. Today, you’ve done something big.

Ashley Williams of Ottawa was in the April 20th edition of the national paper as part of the 2015 All-USA Community College Academic Team. Williams was named one of the top 20 community college students in the nation. She’s a sophomore at Illinois Valley Community College.

For her efforts Williams received $7,000 in scholarships and was invited to a national convention in San Antonio. She plans to transfer to Loyola University and study environmental policy and law.
