We believe in the simple message “Love Your Community”, and that’s just what 18 year old Ashley Carrier does. Ashley is active in many organizations within her community. At school, Ashley is a senior mentor for a group of first-year students. In this role, she ensures that the students’ transition into high school goes as smoothly as possible, meeting with them often to answer their questions and offer insight. Ashley also serves as a partner on the Unified Basketball team alongside athletes with varying levels of disabilities. This past season, Ashley chose to work with a specific student who has severe disabilities. Ashley was this student’s support system on the court and was always there to keep spirits positive on the sidelines, no matter how stressful the situation was. Outside of school, Ashley works as a Certified Nursing Assistant at a local nursing home where she cares for the elderly residents who live there. While at times it can be a trying job, she always has a smile on her face and a pleasant word for the residents she cares for.
Because of her love for her community, Ashley was chosen as a 2019 Northeast Credit Union Nice Catch winner. We applaud her dedication to helping others!
