ASHLEY JACOBSON

Soaring in the sky watching the fog rise from the Missouri River is one of 18-year-old Ashley Jacobson’s favorite sights as she pilots a Cessna 172.

This senior in high school is earning a private pilot’s certificate during her limited free time and hopes to make flying a part of her career.

Ashley discovered her passion for writing spoken word poetry after seeing A.Ward perform at her youth group a few years ago. She’s excited to be a part of a suicide prevention campaign sharing her positive message of unique and natural beauty.

Ashley plans to pursue her education at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, participate in the Air Force ROTC, and enlist in the Air National Guard.
