D'Ann earned her Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from OSU. For the last 10 years she has been teaching, motivating, supporting and inspiring students. She loved working with children and along with teaching worked as a 4-H volunteer for 35 years. D'Ann was very proud of her family as well as being one of OSU's best fans.
