Morgan Layssard, a senior from Bradley, Ark., said she is following her dream of helping people “at their best and worst times” by receiving a nursing degree from Southern Arkansas University.
Her recent election as District 1 director of the Arkansas Nursing Students’ Association will surely rank as a highlight of her academic career. Layssard was elected to the post earlier this month during the state convention of the ANSA in Little Rock. She said she “didn’t get up that morning” thinking about seeking the post.
“I had no idea I would even run for director,” Layssard said of her Oct. 7 election, “but I applied that day. I thought it would be interesting and I would love to serve on a state board. I was super-excited to be elected.”
