Lexy Underwood ’23

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Hometown: Escalon, CA

Major: Elementary Education

Like many students at William Penn University, sports drew Lexy to Oskaloosa. An Infielder for the Softball team, she has balanced the role of student-athlete as an active Elementary Education major. She is serving as President of the Education Club this year. “It is a close-knit group in the Education Division. I have met a lot of great people and we have experienced so much together.”

The appeal of a smaller University and the welcoming town of Oskaloosa were factors in Lexy’s choosing WPU. “I am from a small town in California, it feels more like home here than at a big school.”  The Education professors have also made her experience a positive one, “All of my professors have a wealth of experience to share with us in the classroom.”

Lexy plans to return to California and teach Kindergarten upon graduation next year.
