Tyshianna Bankhead

Tyshianna Bankhead has big plans for her future, which are fueled by the leadership opportunities she’s received at the University of Illinois Springfield. She is a student ambassador for UIS Admissions, co-president of the African Student Association, secretary of Girl Talk, a member of The Research Society at UIS and a Model United Nations delegate. However, she is most passionate about dancing. She is president of the Epic Praise for Christ Dance Team and co-president of the Afrobeat Dance Crew. Following graduation, Bankhead plans to continue dancing and hopes to open her own community center and praise dance studio in her hometown.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
