Ananya Yilma attended The Piney Woods School from 2001-2004. In 2004, Yilma graduated as the salutatorian of his class. He found out about PWS because his brother and sister attended this great educational institution in the early 90s. Ananya stated he wouldn’t be where he is today if it wasn’t for Piney Woods. His three-year journey taught him to be a responsible adult at an early age. And that prepared him for college life and beyond.
Ananya is able to trace his organization and productivity habits to lessons from his Piney Woods days. Those qualities have served him well during his personal and professional journey. After completing his time at PWS, Ananya enrolled in Mississippi Valley State University and was a 2006 initiate into Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated.
Currently, Ananya is a product manager working for CommScope, a network infrastructure company in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. He is responsible for managing their software line of products.
