“Aly has developed into one of the best leaders I’ve worked with during my 24 years of advising the Ouachitonian. She truly takes responsibility for producing the yearbook and staying true to its high standards. Aly is a leader but also sees herself as part of a team. She is well respected by her peers and creates a positive work environment for her staff.”                    -Dr. Deborah Root, Ouachita Baptist University

“Aly is highly professional in her outlook and models responsible leadership for her staff. She teaches younger staff members while editing their work carefully for style and accuracy. As a result, the Ouachitonian has continued its tradition of winning many state and national awards. The 2014 book won seven Gold Circle Awards from Columbia Scholastic Press Association, with Aly directly responsible for five of the seven. She won first place in the nation in two of the design categories.”                                                                   -Dr. Jeff Root, Ouachita Baptist University

“Aly’s professionalism in working with members needs for marketing and graphic design has made her a valuable asset to the strength of our organization. Aly’s work ethic and talent have raised the bar to the benefits of doing business with our organization.”                 -Shelly Loe, Arkadelphia Chamber of Commerce

“Working alongside Aly has been an honor to say the least. Her dedication to every part of the book is like none other. I have seen her work countless hours to perfect pages to reach her goal of an award-winning book. Aly’s eye for design can be summed up in one word: excellent.”          -Amber Easterly, Ouachitonian staffer

“I have had the good fortune to meet Aly during freshman orientation while I was serving as Ouachita’s alumni director. She was a recipient of our prestigious Tiger Network Leadership Award and, in that role, served as a student ambassador at both alumni and recruitment events. Her energy, articulation and servant spirit stood out immediately.”          -Lauren Land, formerly with Ouachita Baptist University

“Aly effectively leads the staff by making sure staff members are producing quality work. She has natural skills as both a leader and a designer. Aly knows how to run a staff by making sure priorities are taken care of and that staff members are learning and having fun at the same time. Aly has been an encouragement to me as a staff member and communicator.”          -Robert DeSoto, Ouachitonian staffer
