In 2018, a school district, a dance team, and a mother lost a beautiful soul. Ashley Richardson was a phenomenal dancer, whose love for dance sparked her passion to one day attend an Historically Black College or University and successfully audition for an HBCU dance team. She had a fire in her to learn and take her talents to the next level. Ashley was an important part of the fundamental development of Buck Out Cleveland; she was one of our earliest students whose engagement still impacts our organization today.
Buck Out Cleveland is currently raising funds to offer the Ashley Richardson Academic Scholarship. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide general financial assistance for college. The recipient may apply the scholarship towards tuition, books, housing, etc.

Please consider giving a gift to support this scholarship opportunity and honor the life of our beloved Ashley.
