As an undergraduate, Angela served as a student member-at-large on the National Council of Alpha Lambda Delta. This organization recognizes academic excellence in first year college students.

It is this zest for learning that Mrs. Willyerd hopes to pass along to her students as well as having students realize their highest potential.
As a graduate student, Angela worked as an intern at the National Middle School Association (NMSA), which is now called the Association for Middle Level Educators.
