Ashley and Sierra Fund to award $10,000 in scholarships

MONTICELLO, NY — The Ashley and Sierra Memorial Scholarship is available to graduating seniors at Monticello High School who exhibit well-rounded scholarship and vocational aptitude geared to the service of others and the ever-changing needs of society.

The families of Ashley Lynn Morgan and Sierra Lynn Cerrone created the original fund in 2005 to honor and celebrate the lives of the two best friends who passed away in a car crash in 2004. At the time of their passing, Ashley and Sierra were both freshman at Monticello High School and were on the varsity golf team as well as members of the debate team.

This year will mark the 10-year anniversary of the establishment of the scholarship fund. To commemorate the anniversary, the fund will award a total of $10,000 in scholarships to two graduating seniors of Monticello High School.

The fund is facilitated through the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan. For more information, call Karen VanHouten Minogue at 845/769-9393, email, or visit
