During her four years at Auburn, Pearce was active. She was a member of Kappa Deta Sorority, Beta Alpha Psi Accounting Fraternity and Relay for Life.

Pearce credits her college success to attending Morgan Academy, where she graduated in 2020.

“Morgan Academy helped me prepare in so many ways,” Pearce said. “Being involved in sports, Student Government Association and so much more in high school led me to branch out and get involved at Auburn. I had wonderful teachers at Morgan Academy that helped me prepare for the harder classes I had at Auburn.”
