ANSLEY - - JoAnn Scott has had a passion for sports for as long as she can remember. The 1982 Ansley High School grad excelled in several sports in high school, and went on to compete at UNK. It was there that she would fall into a random â€śjobâ€ť that would shape the rest of her life.
Monday morning Scott returned to her alma mater of AHS where she addressed the 7-12 students about her experiences. Her presentation was not one of simply listing accomplishments - rather it was a call for the students to never give up on their dream.
