Bachelor's degree in music from Messiah College and working towards a M.S.Ed in Counseling at Alfred University
Director of drama and Drama Club adviser, Janna joined Alfred State College in 2010. Instilled with a love of music and theater from an early age, Buckwalter has been performing since she was a child. Buckwalter taught music in the Rochester City School District before returning to Alfred and falling in love with theater. Before starting at Alfred State, she was actively involved in local theater at the community and university levels for four years, working with both local and professional directors. Her favorite part of directing is seeing each individual's energy, ideas, and creativity come together to tell a single story.
