Zoo School Alumnus, Ashley, Awarded Over $30K in College Scholarships

June 23, 2011

Ashley Stilson, a DACC Columbus Zoo and Aquarium School alumnus, was recently awarded $30,126.00 per year in scholarships by St. John’s University in New York. Ashley graduated from DACC and Westerville Central with the class of 2010 and attended the University of Hawaii for her freshman year of college. After learning more about the unfair treatment of wildlife, she decided her calling was in helping the conservation efforts of different animal species. She is now majoring in environmental studies and participating in the pre-law program at St. John’s.


While at DACC, Ashley participated in our Student Ambassador program, taking a leadership role in school events and speaking to area high schools about the opportunities available at DACC. She was named Teen of the Week by the Delaware Gazette and she also took part in our Student Journeys campaign, an effort to help current DACC students share their success stories. See Ashley’s story here.

Congratulations Ashley! We look forward to hearing more about your experiences at St. John’s!
