Kelly Ingle graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Faulkner University in May 2021. She is now pursuing a Master's in Elementary Education at Faulkner University.
After completing her master's degree, her goal is to teach first or second grade, while also continuing her education to pursue specialist degrees that will allow her to broaden her horizons.
While at college Kelly maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout her entire college career (she was also Valedictorian of her high school class) and has been a member of the Alpha Chi and Kappa Delta Pi honor societies and the Phi Lambda social club, as well as The National Society of Leadership and Success. She also served in her school’s Student Government Association for three years. Kelly has served as a Welcome Week Mentor and Note Taker (for students with differing abilities) at Faulkner University and the Youth Activities Coordinator and Sanitation Engineer at her church. She has also been volunteering for the Devoted 24/7 event which helps people all over Montgomery, Alabama, since 2017.
Kelly’s father, Army Specialist Robert Ingle, was severely injured when his vehicle was struck by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in Iraq. He was air evacuated with life-threatening injuries including a traumatic brain injury (TBI), and continues to suffer multiple symptoms to this day.
Kelly says, "Thank you so much for the financial assistance that you have provided me and for all that you have done for me over the years. It was truly a blessing and continues to be. I can't thank you enough.”
NGS would like to thank the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund in supporting Kelly and helping her reach her dreams.
