"The Ashlie Douglas Story" Wednesday Blog
Ashlie Douglas was Head Girl of Montego Bay High School for Girls. When she approached the Versan table some five years ago, it was with the view of going to college at the tender age of 16. We advised her that at such a tender age, boarding school would be a viable option. She was adamant, she said I want to go to college. Why do Sixth Form, when I can complete college. She received a full scholarship to Fisk University. I am happy to say this Montego Bay native has had a full ride financially through college and will be one of our guest speakers at this Farewell ceremony in May. We are proud to say she has earned a full scholarship to Vanderbilt University to do her PhD in Math Education. Look out Jamaica. From the bachelor's to the doctorate, fully paid...the Versan Way.
