Ashley White-Stumpf Dedication
On October 21st we honored Ashley White-Stumpf for her dedication and service she gave to our country and to the athletic training education program. In 2011, Ashley passed away while fighting for her country in Afghanistan where she was serving in the Army National Guard. Ashley portrayed the 5 foundations of our program - honest, integrity, loyalty, consistency, and trust. We have placed a plaque in our new classroom to display the devotion she had to our program and nation. Ashley was an exemplary student who always strived to do her best in all everything she did. We are honored that she was a part of our program. We hope that through this dedication our current and future students will always remember the leadership and commitment she had.
