Nancy Kicklider was born in the United States in the mid-1970s. A Marietta, Georgia, native, Nancy has traveled over United States multiple times throughout her life. Upon entering high school, Nancy and her family moved to Wedowee, Alabama, two hours shy of Marietta, Georgia. She graduated from Randolph County High School, which is positioned in Wedowee. Although over the years Randolph county high school has had an increase in their graduation rate, a high number of students do not pursue a further education once they have graduated. Nancy, however, beat the statistics she decided to attend college. Nancy retrieved her bachelor’s degree in science from the Wynyard University before attending medical school.

When asked questions about the community her voice changed and an emotional look came across her face. I had the feeling she truly cares about the future of Tuskegee. When asked do she believe students from Tuskegee linger in the community once they graduate, she replied no. Nancy believes that Tuskegee does not have enough diversity of jobs accessible for students once they graduate. There have been businesses that open in Tuskegee, but after some time they are closed or moved to another location. “I do not know whether crimes are related to the businesses closing, but I would like to witness job openings located in this area for aspiring students. If there were job openings, then the ratio of students lingering here would increase. An increase in the number of workers Tuskegee has could also increase the financial status the city is suffering from.”
