Anesia Martin to continue education at the University of Lynchburg

by Billy Chandler

Our Emory & Henry seniors are preparing to graduate and change the world.

Anesia Martin of Martinsville, Va. will receive a bachelor’s degree in exercise science.

Martin will graduate with the class of 2023. She is a member of Emory Activities Board, Black Student Union, Pre-Health Club and Delta Rho Delta. “While being at Emory & Henry, it has been a roller coaster ride,” Martin said. “I came in during the COVID year so I wasn’t able to experience some of the things that many earlier and later students might have been able to experience. As the years went on I have been able to grow myself while being here.”

“Emory & Henry has really prepared me for many real-world experiences in the workforce and also in life. It has given me many opportunities that other people might not be exposed to. I have learned so much about myself while being here. I have been able to grow connections and build my academic foundation,” Martin said. After graduation, she will be pursuing a master’s degree in athletic training at the University of Lynchburg.

Martin is a first-generation college student.

Get involved in as many activities as you want and can. Don’t listen to other people when they say that those specific clubs or groups are “lame” or “boring.” When you join these groups, you are not only meeting more people on campus but also making connections that could last a lifetime. Be yourself and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
