Holgate graduates from Marshall University

Jillian Ashley Holgate, the daughter of Valerie Holgate of New Cumberland, W.Va. and John Holgate, of New York City, N.Y. and now one of the Daughters of Marshall, is a 2020 Marshall University Honors Graduate earning her Bachelor Of Science Degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry.

Jillian was an active member of the Marching Thunder highlighting her years playing flute with a visit to Italy for a parade and two bowl games. She was Vice President of the Photography Club, member of the Clay Club, worked at the Welcome Center giving new student tours, serves as a mentor in the Pre-Pharmacy Club and has begun her internship at Cabell County Hospital.

Jillian will continue her Graduate School education at the Marshall University School of Pharmacy, to earn her Doctorate in 2023.

Jillian’s high school AP classes, GPA, numerous scholarships, and focused determination – which included frequent sightings of her studying while using the treadmill at the campus Recreation center – have rewarded her by earning her degrees debt free.
