Senior Spotlight: Ashley Wright

Caroline Gay, Photographer

Ashley Wright is truly one-of-a-kind. She is always there when someone needs a laugh, a hug, or just to talk. This year, she takes a variety of classes including Yearbook, AP Psychology, AP Stats, AP English, AP Environmental, and American Cultures. She strives to do her best and challenge herself in the classroom. Her strong work ethic allows her to persevere through a heavy workload until she finds success in herself. This determined attitude also drives her to enjoy and succeed in her athletics. Playing travel softball over the years, she has found her true passion. She has received Coach’s Award and multiple MVP awards for both softball and volleyball over the last few years! 10th grade, she was inducted into the National Honor Society, while also achieving an A Honor Roll throughout high school. Ashley dedicates herself to anything and everything she does. She also involves herself in our RMA community, serving in the CARE Club to support the spread of love and anti-bullying.

If there is one thing Ashley would be known for, it would be her unique and fun personality which can brighten anyone’s day. She loves to laugh, but she loves, even more, to make others laugh along with her. When someone hears even a faintness of her laughing, it almost brings instantaneous smiles to follow from all of her fellow friends and classmates. Tiffany Chandler said, “Ashley Wright is a very caring and giving person. I know she will always be there for me if I need somebody to talk to or somebody. I will miss you!” Her classmates will never forget Ashley’s certain fire that does not cease to let her speak her mind, and that’s usually what people love most about her. She is always up for something fun to do with her friends, highlighting her extroverted nature and outgoing sense to even strangers. We will surely miss Ashley’s witty humor and infectious laugh as she continues her education at East Carolina University studying Biology with a focus in Biochemistry!

“RMA softball has definitely been a big aspect of my time here at RMA!! I love going out on the field with all the girls and feeling the encouragement they constantly give me. I love all of the girls, from the annoying 7th graders to the only other senior on the team, Sadie! This program has helped me grow as a person and leader, and I will miss all the memories RMA softball brought me.”
