Ana Doder

Major: Liberal Arts (PVCC ’21)

Ana Doder is the 2021 recipient of the College Board Community Service Award. The award honors her leadership and organization of a food bank fundraiser and creation of holiday care packages for fellow students. Ana also served as the president of the Student Government Association.

Why PVCC: “My parents always pushed us to be the best that we can be. I wanted to go to college because they were not able to finish school. We are originally from Bosnia, and when they were in college is when the war broke out, so my sister and I are first-generation college students. I am glad I attended a community college because I was not ready to go off to a four-year college.”

Future plans: Next year she will transfer her PVCC credits to Virginia Commonwealth University to pursue a bachelor’s degree in political science.
