Ashley Nagel Scholarship 2021-2022
Ashley was born November 23, 2008 in Rochester, NY. She attended preschool at Holy Cross and loved it. She always enjoyed camping, Disney and World X4. Some of her activities included dancing, singing, karaoke, doing crafts, playing outdoors and spending time with friends.
Ashley was an amazing girl who touched everyone’s life that she met. She had a boyfriend and they were inseparable. Ashley had a dog named Bear that was her favorite and was always there for her. She loved watching Olivia, Max and Ruby, any Disney Princess movie and Shrek. She lived only 4 short years before DIPG took her from us.
Family and friends would best describe Ashley as always laughing, having a sense of humor, always smiling, a child who was busy, giving, thoughtful, sweet, courageous, independent, social, well-liked, and never complaining. Ashley made friends very easily and is greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Each year Holy Cross CYO & Holy Cross School hold a special evening basketball game with our 2nd Grade Bomber Basketball & Cheer in honor of Ashley. All proceeds from the game go to support a Scholarship given to a Preschool student at Holy Cross School each year. The event is spirit-filled and attended by so many who love Ashley, including her classmates Jack, Corey and Dominick. Her memory lives on at Holy Cross in her Memory Garden outside the Preschool building and in the preschoolers who her scholarship supports.
Each year her family, friends and former teachers run/walk in her honor to support CURE. Her friends Jack and Corey also work to raise funds for CURE. We loved Ashley and miss her so very much.
