Meet one of our Daniels Scholars: Ashley Settergren

Meet one of our Daniels Fund Scholars, Ashley Settergren from Brighton High School!

Ashley Settergren

Ashley has served as a youth core member on the City of Brighton’s Youth Commission for two years. Being a part of the youth commission gave her a platform to share her voice and make an impact on our community. This  gave her valuable leadership skills and volunteer experience, which made her an ideal candidate for the Daniels Fund. 

“I am ecstatic and honored to be a Daniels Fund Scholar. I am grateful for my community, teachers, and family that supported me throughout this process. As a first-generation student and first of seven siblings to pursue a higher education, this scholarship will put me on the pathway of achieving my dream of becoming a teacher.” 

Ashley plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in elementary education with a minor in nonprofit management to then work for a nonprofit organization, such as Teach for America.

Congratulations Ashley! We are #27JProud of your hard work and cannot wait to see what the future holds for you!
