The World Headquarters of Nice People
By Cortney CarathersJune 21, 2021
Do you remember the day you moved out of your parent's house? That day was a mixture of excitement and uncertainty all at the same time. But I would soon find out that moving to Ashland was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I grew up in a small town where there wasn't much to do but the people made it the best place on earth. I would soon find out that Ashland would become my new home away from home for that same reason: the people. When I first moved here in 2018, Ashland had the same feel as where I came from. It was a quiet little town and I loved it because it reminded me of home and made me feel safe. In the years following that I have met some of the most incredible and nicest people, I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Being a student at Ashland University has given me so many amazing friends, provided me with so many opportunities, and helped me accomplish so many things I have always dreamed of. I have been so fortunate with the jobs that I have had here as well. These jobs have helped me become more involved in the community and most importantly meet the amazing people that make up this community. I love listening to the people who grew up here talk about how much this town has grown and will continue to grow for years to come. I know that Ashland has a strong future because of the wonderful community of people that call this place home. Thank you, Ashland, for teaching me so much, helping me grow, and for providing me with a second home.
