Christina began working towards her degree in accounting in 2009. She is currently an Accounting Control Analyst at the Speedway Corporate office and the former administrative assistant for the department of science and mathematics at Cedarville University.
“Going to school part time and working full time and having a family is incredibly challenging,” she said. “I have a very supportive family, and my former department, which is like family, has really encouraged me.”
Hayley enrolled in college in 2018. She currently works for the Clark County Combined Health District and has been a part of the COVID-19 response team.
“Since March, Hayley has been part of our growing team who are providing the local public health response to SARS-CoV2 in Clark County,” said Christina Conover at the health district. “Hayley has been an asset as part of our team, as she is able to connect with individuals impacted by COVID-19 and advocate for their unique needs through her efforts at CCCHD.”
Hayley said she hopes to continue serving families at the health district after graduation, and hopes one day to open a nonprofit dance studio where families can have access to affordable recreational activities.
The two said it’s surreal that their time as students together is coming to an end.
“The other day we took our senior photos,” Hayley said. “She’s (Christina) been going to school for almost 12 years, and it was so cool to see her get dressed in the cap and gown before we graduate and see her accomplish that goal.”
