Well, it is again graduation time for students at Livingston County High School. Graduates are excited about planning their futures. Some don’t have a clue what they want to do with the rest of their lives. Some plan to take the summer to think about their future before they make a decision that.
Allyson Willbanks however; knows exactly what her future will be. Ally has been working on her future for quite some time. She has been attending Paducah Tilghman Trade School and has her certified nurse assistant (CNA) license and is working on her pharmacy tech certification. Although Ally is only 17 she only has three test to complete and when she turns 18 she will be able to go and take her state board test to become a pharmacist tech.
Although Ally has all these accomplishments under her belt her true love is criminal justice. She will be attending WKCTC in the fall to receive her two year associate’s degree in Applied Science. Ally says, “I cannot remember a time since I was very young that I wasn’t interested in all the crime shows on TV. I would like to major in either Forensic Science or become a cop.”
If all that wasn’t enough, Ally is also a volunteer firefighter for the Salem Fire Department. Following in her father Jerry Willbanks shoes as well as her Uncle Chuck and her Grandpa Franklin (Bubba) Croft. Ally says she does it because she enjoys helping the community.
