Alyssa Thorpe is the recipient of the Ashley Burgauer Scholarship.
Alyssa is a senior at Delta High School. She plans to attend Purdue University to study nursing. She is the daughter of Jennifer Thorpe.
This scholarship was established in memory of Ashley Burgauer, who passed away suddenly in 2013 from myocarditis disease. Ashley had a passion for caring for others and received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Ball State University in 2010. In 2016, Ashley's family and The Honor Stride, a non-profit organization established by Ashley's friends, created the scholarship to support a graduating student from Delaware County pursuing a nursing degree.
