Hello  @loydsmohan .  We ran into something similar with a few individuals earlier in the year.  In our situation is was because the instructor's notification preference for announcement was set to "do not send me anything".  Might this be what is happening in your situation?  This document explains how to set up notifications as an instructor, How do I set my Canvas notification preferences as an instructor? and this one how to set up notifications as a student How do I set my Canvas notification preferences as a student?.   

I hope this helps but let us know if this is not the issue!

To ericwerth‌'s suggestion, I want to add that for the creator of an announcement to be notified of that announcement, they must already be subscribed ASAP to the Announcement Created By You notification preference.
