Outside of school, this senior is a member of the RCYF youth group and enjoys being a part of their praise team.

This senior’s favorite movie is the “SpongeBob Squarepants Movie,” and she enjoys listening to Nicki Minaj. She also loves the color violet and eating pancakes. Her favorite show is “The Office” and when asked what her favorite subject is, Ashley said she would rather play volleyball. For her future plans, Ashley sees herself going to college, though she’s not sure what for yet. Ten years from now, she hopes to be graduated from college, living in a city, and starting her career.
Ashley’s favorite memory of high school is state volleyball her sophomore year because the team was able to get runner-up. When asked who she would spend the day with, this senior said she would spend it with Jesus to ask him questions about anything and everything. Ashley would like to leave this advice for the underclassmen: “Messing up is okay! Everyone makes mistakes, but we don’t have to let them define us.” She also advises that you are never too young to make a change. Use your voice and use it now.
