Ashley Hollinshead

As an undergraduate student, Chemistry major and Capital Scholars Honors Program member Ashley Hollinshead is getting to do hands-on research at the University of Illinois Springfield. She was recently chosen, along with ten other UIS students, to present her research at the University of Illinois Undergraduate Research Day at the Illinois State Capitol. Her love of science has led her to apply for medical school. She’s not sure what type of doctor she wants to be yet, but she knows she’ll be working in a field she loves. Hollinshead fell in love with UIS during a campus visit in high school. “I would choose UIS again in a heartbeat,” she said.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
