Welcome to the UHS Media Center
Our mission is to educate patrons to be effective users of information and technology. The school media specialist, in collaboration with classroom teachers, strives to prepare students to be life-long learners.
My name is Mrs. Ashley Yancey and I am the Media Coordinator for UHS. I have been working at Union for 15 years and love the family atmosphere that surrounds everyone that walks through the doors. To give you a little information about myself, I graduated from East Bladen High School in Elizabethtown, NC in 1999. I then went on to Chowan College where I stayed for two years before transferring to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. I graduated in 2004 with a degree in English Education and was fortunate to be hired by Mr. Staurt Daughtery in the Fall of that year to serve as an English II teacher. I have had the opportunity to teach all levels of high school English, but my experience lies mainly in English I and English II courses. I am excited about this new position and look forward to the new possibilities it will bring.
When I first started at Union, I was an assistant coach for both the Lady Spartan Volleyball and Softball Teams. I was the UHS Reflector Yearbook Advisor for several years and also had the pleasure of teaching Digital Media which produced many entertaining news casts and special productions. In 2011, I completed my course work and earned my Masters Degree in Curriculum, Instruction, and Supervision. On a personal note, I met my husband, who happens to be from the Union community, in 2007 and we were married in 2009. We now have two sons, Eli and Jaxon.
Union is a place where I not only work, but where I call home. Go Spartans!
