The Ashley Morgan Storm Memorial Scholarship fund was established in 2012 by Todd and Kim Storm to honor the life of their daughter. Ashley was a graduate of Columbia City High School class of 2012 who had been accepted to the University of Saint Francis to study Radiology before the tragic motorcycle accident that took her life June 23, 2012. This scholarship honors an energetic young woman who was loved by her family, friends, and everyone whose life she touched.
Applicants must be a graduating Columbia City High School or Churubusco High School senior planning to attend the University of Saint Francis with career aspirations in the medical field.
Ashley Morgan Storm
Ashley was an extremely beautiful, hard working, self confident, and determined young woman who knew how to get what she wanted out of life. She was an organized individual, shy until you got to know her, but willing to help anyone that needed it. She was very self confident in who she was and what she wanted to do with her life. She was very excited about the future and ready to begin her studies in radiology at the University of Saint Francis. She also dreamed of owning her own business some day. Ashley had an amazing smile and beautiful blue eyes. She had a wonderful laugh that was contagious. She definitely caught people’s eyes when she walked into a room and she could look beautiful in anything from pajamas to a formal gown. She was a natural beauty but like any teenager loved her makeup, perfume, and candle collection.
Ashley had a great love of animals. We have ended up with several pets that she collected along the way. Family members have also welcomed her pets into their homes. If there was an injured bunny or bird she would nurse them back to health until they could be taken to a wildlife preserve and released. She even cared for an orphaned duck once.
Ashley lived every moment of her life to the fullest. She even had a chance to own her own home at the age of 19. She never wasted a moment of her short life. Ashley’s beauty, confidence and compassion for others continue to inspire us each day. Ashley had three tattoos, one of a dove symbolizing her Lutheran Baptism on April 25, 1993, one of a heart symbolizing her love of life, and one that said “believe in a new beginning”. Believe in a new beginning has since become our family motto. Although her time on this earth was not long enough for all of us and all of the lives of those she touched we know that her faith has taken her to a far better place. Her graduation class motto was YOLO “you only live once”, so please live each day as Ashley did. Live for each moment.
