Student Spotlight: CLA Fellow Candidate AND Homecoming Royal, Ashley Perryman
Ashley Perryman is a senior student with majors in Allied Health Sciences and Public Health. She is a returning CLA Fellow Candidate this year, and was elected as the 2023 Homecoming Royal! In addition to her engagement in the CLA, Ashley is incredibly intertwined within the campus community. She is involved in the Track and Field Team and Sprints Leadership Committee, as well as being Chaplain for You Beautiful Black Woman and previously a life group leader & celevitationality leader for Campus Ministry. When asked what being on the Homecoming Court meant to her, Ashley said, "It is an opportunity to be a representation of the organizations that I am involved in across campus as well as Grand Valley as a whole. Being a member of this court is a chance to emulate what it means to be a Laker, which to me means being an active and positive member of the Grand Valley community".
