I am so excited to tell y’all about Miss Aijah, as she has quite the impressive resume! Aijah and I met through the WIU track team. My husband, Trey, had accepted the Director of Track & Field position at Western Illinois University this past August! Aijah was on the team when we arrived, and we couldn’t be more thankful that she was! She not only greeted us with positive energy, but we quickly learned she has a strong work ethic and love for the team & WIU.
Aijah is a naturally born leader on and off the track. Like I said, her resume is IMPRESSIVE!! To name just a few accolades, she now holds a B.S. Degree in Biomedical Science with a Minor in Chemistry, was Varsity Track & Field Sprinter for 4 years at WIU, won the Miss Black Talent in our 2022 Pageant (for obvious reasons), and is on her way to her M.S. in Health Sciences next!
Aijah, you will be missed here at WIU. Thank you for always showing up with a smile while under your strenuous class load! Your leadership has left an impression here that will surely last. I hope these photos make you smile and remember all the memories you have at WIU! Best wishes, we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you!
