Estelle Higdon ‘21

Hometown: Coal Valley, Illinois
Majors: Communication
Future Plans: Work in marketing


Estelle Higdon chose the University of Illinois Springfield because coming from a smaller hometown, she wanted a college that was “not too big or small.” On campus, she is president of the Needle Arts Club; co-director of Leadership for Life Service Program; marketing director for The Alchemist Review, the English Department’s literary journal; and a member of the Christian Student Fellowship. She says what she likes most about UIS is “the great community of students and faculty.” Following graduation from UIS, she plans to work in the marketing field.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
