The Ball State University Foundation Top 100 Student Awards recognizes 100 outstanding junior and senior undergraduates at Ball State University who represent Beneficence both in and out of the classroom. We are thrilled to highlight the winners from Teachers College.


Originally from Middleton, Wisconsin, junior Keegan Ducke is a dual Elementary Education/Special Education, Exceptional Needs major. Keegan loves the idea that she can play a substantial role in a young person’s life. She wants to positively influence and support her students, and she is excited to be a part of so many different student’s stories.


Keegan keeps busy outside of classes as the president of the Women’s Lacrosse Club at Ball State. She is also involved with Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society in education, and the Educators for Equity and Justice club.


Expecting to graduate in May 2023, Keegan would like to begin working right away, while traveling during the summers. She is also planning to go back to school after a few years to earn a master’s degree.


In her spare time, Keegan likes to stay active playing lacrosse. She also works at a daycare, and loves getting so much experience with children. A fun fact about her: “My family got a puppy as a replacement for me when I moved to Ball State freshman year!”

Congratulations Keegan!
