Anica Gillis is a senior from Chassell, Michigan, majoring in speech, language, and hearing sciences. She is graduating this December, and in her time, she has completed over 750 hours and all four edges in Superior Edge.
Anica enjoys being outside, especially running and cross country skiing. She is also an assistant cross country coach; National Student Speech, Language, and Hearing Association (NSSLHA) treasurer; Student Leader Fellowship Program (SLFP) graduate; Norlite Nursing Home volunteer chair; and a First Year Experience (FYE) Teaching Assistant.
Anica has enjoyed many different aspects of each edge, but a clear winner for her favorite has been starting the After School Program at Marquette Alternative High School. She stated, “I know that no matter how many students came each day, I was able to brighten the days of those who were there.”
When asked what her favorite thing about Superior Edge has been, Anica replied, “My ability to aim for something; with volunteering and being active, I am able to reach my goal of completing the overall ‘Superior Edge.’ It gives me clear willpower and drive.”
