Anna Logan


From Dual-Credit Student to May 2018 Graduate, Anna Logan is Ready for the Next Step

Both inside and outside of the classroom, Anna Logan has achieved tremendous success at Richland. During her time at Richland, Anna has gotten involved on campus as an active member of the Student Government Association as well as being the student representative for the Academic Standards Committee. This May, Anna will graduate with her associate in science with a concentration in accounting.

Anna first began attending Richland as a dual-credit student while being homeschooled. She felt that beginning her college education at Richland would be a good transition for her from the homeschool environment to a college classroom.

“I knew I wanted to continue my education.  I wanted to get used to being a part of a community college and taking the college road in steps, but still stay home and afford it,” explained Anna.

Anna has found a mentor in her accounting professor, Carol Hood. While originally pursuing a degree in business, she took one of Professor Hood’s accounting classes and was hooked. She changed her major and has now taken all of her accounting classes with her. 

“She’s really been instrumental in my education. She’s helped me in my classes and made it easy to understand,” said Anna.

Along with learning the class material, Anna admits that she’s also learned life lessons from her professors.

“They’ve helped me grow and become who I am now. I was that awkward teenager and now I’m coming out of here with friends and experiences. It means a lot.”

Anna plans to transfer to Truman State University in Missouri after graduation to continue her studies in accounting.
