"It is with sincere gratitude that I write you in thanks for speaking to the students of Guilford High School. Your presentation was not only informative but engaging and moving as well. The way that you were able to bring the realities of your experiences from September 11, 2001 into the classroom had a tremendous impact on several students. Your message of transforming a tragic event into an opportunity for renewal is unparalleled and should be shared as often as possible."
~ Mr. James M. Colandrea,
GHS Faculty Member
"I was fortunate enough to attend your speech at the conference. I came to watch Ashley do her Ambassador duties and to watch her receive and to watch her receive her Golden Clover award (proud mother), and was so moved by your speech. I am so glad that 3 of my children were also watching and listening to you on that day. I feel that you reached so many of us that day, not just me but everyone in that room. I thank you for making such a difference in the lives of us all.
May God continue to bless you."
