Asha Medley-Turner

Asha Medley-Turner, a senior at University City High School who receives services from SSD, has transformed her life and persevered through many life challenges.

Two years ago, circumstances compelled Asha to examine herself and her behaviors. She made changes and has since gotten a job and begun working at Shop ‘n Save.  She is on track to receive her high school diploma and she has learned many independent living skills.       

“Asha knows what it means to not only have friends, but how to be one,” said SSD teacher Julie Dee, who nominated Asha for the Rosemary Zander Award. She added that Asha now has near perfect attendance at school and at her job.

Asha has a post-secondary plan in place to pursue a career in child care. “This is a perfect fit for Asha considering how well she works with children and her strong desire to help anyone in need,” said Dee.
