Anna Albury

Anna Albury

My name is Anna Albury. This Fall will make my third year attending LC. I was raised in the Bahamas but moved to Florida when I was thirteen to attend the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind because there were no facilities in the Bahamas for me as a totally blind person. Even though I was born totally blind this does not stop me from being successful and accomplishing my goals. I am currently studying Business, History, and Missions and Ministry here at LC. I will do everything I can as a Wildcat Navigator to welcome and assist you in whatever you need throughout your freshmen year at LC.

Wildcat Navigators

The Wildcat Navigator plays an extremely important role at Louisiana College. Most students form their first impression of LC and college life during their orientation experience and their interaction with their Navigator. You were once a freshman and hopefully realize that the transition between high school and college is full of uncertainty and anxiety. Your role as a Navigator is to assist new students as they cope with this transition. Wildcat Navigators are viewed as role models by our incoming students. It is important that LC chooses student leaders who have already demonstrated Christ-like character in the way they conduct themselves both on and off-campus. LC is looking for leaders whose behavior and character will encourage our new students to pursue excellence in every aspect of their lives.
